For my New Year's Resolution post, I said that I would discover my playing style, and I would find GM's that shared this style.

 

With my own research and coach's help, I have discovered that I am a positional player, but I have some characteristics of a tactical player. A positional player, like Anatoly Karpov, would usually start a game with a positional move such as 1. d4, as he did in many of his games. A tactical player, like Tal, will find many tactics that win the game in a brilliant manner.

 

I will focus study on both positional and sharp openings, and I will also review games played by Petrosian, Karpov, Kasparov, and Tal to improve my playing.

 

Feel free to comment your playing style below: 

I recommend the site: http://www.chesspersonality.com/ to find your style, but you should also review your own games and try to find your style by yourself, and see how it compares to the quiz results.
