I was a positional player by nature. I would try to win by tiny positional advantages. But I became bored with chess. It wasn't quite so fun anymore. I began stalling in many games, simply tired and burnt out of making moves on correspondence chess. That is until I found the fun in chess.
Tactics are a wonderful way to have fun in chess. It gives me great pleasure to beat somebody with a speculative sacrifice or a vicious attack. I know I wrote about turning from tactical to positional. Well, that time has changed once again. I have explored the Muzio Gambit a bunch recently and found that I really enjoy the attack that I get. It is not an easy one to refute either if not downright impossible. I have played the Muzio well against strong and weak opponents and have great success. I find that my tactics are getting much better and now I am coming back to fun chess. I also joined a tournament where I try to lose. I find it very relaxing and I try to force checkmate on myself. I just hate it when I accidentally checkmate somebody :).
So I am coming back to tactical chess and combining it with my positional background as I carry on towards my goal of becoming an IM.
