How do you move to strategy from tactics?

Naw dog, he was carrying the weight of his responsibility as the senior monk ya feel me?   He's tryin' to lead the 2nd monk down the right path know-what-im-sayin?  The hot babe was a formality at that point brah.

This is another Bhudist joke:

A man is at his yearly physical. The doctor says "Sir, you're going to need to stop masturbating."

 

The man asks, "Why?"

 

The doctor goes, "At least until I'm done examining you!"

Three workers locked up:
first man : “I was ten minutes late, so accused of sabotage.”
second : “I was ten minutes early, so accused of espionage.”
third man  “I got to work on time, so  accused of having Western watch.”

Why would you ''move from'' strategy to tactics?

Tactics are good to learn to familarize one's self with common patterns and repetitions.

Strategy is the rest of chess... other than the standard rules of chess, you can do anything you want within those rules of the game.

I use strategy and tactics, but mostly strategy.

I thought the masterbating doctor visit joke was funny, the rest were subpar at best.

@OP: So... did you actually want a serious answer to your questions?

hleuk2

Jokes are only usually funny if you haven't heard them.

 Like chess tricks:)

 

Yup another serious answer would be good

On the other hand, eldras, you liked what transpo said.  Hard for me to be serious after that spew. Smile

I did like the Western watch one though. Laughing

do you have anything to add that isn't perjorative about strategy?

 

Fpr example,

What do you think about pawn push as a basis of chess?

 

There are 9 queens each available.

I dispute you can have any strategy at all without understanding how your oposition thinks. Passion, intelligence and reasoning have to be estimated in order to take chances; if you over estimate the enemy's reasoning, he may kill you by brute animal tricks like 4 move chequemate.

If you underestimate your enemy he will descend from the mountains and kill you unexpectedly.

 

the greatest tactic is always encirclement, done well by the germans and russians in WWII, and introduced by Hannibal at Cannae.

 

you use the enemy's own forces to crushhimself, and indeed blocking where his king can move usually requires his own pieces against him.

 

A billion trick variations can be programmed in including permutations of tactics as nested heirarchies, but strategy is a real mind game i think?

Simple question: when you play, what sort of goals do you set (if any at all)? If you do not have a concrete plan, then it isn't called strategy. "Attack his weaknesses, occupy these files/diagonals" for example, does not qualify as strategy. Rather, it has a closer resemblance to daydreaming. A strategy is the natural follow-up to your analysis of the position. Post some games and state what your strategies were at various points, and these funny folks might actually have to work with.

Naw, let's keep it funny!  That's plenty to work with! Smile

Do I know you? Well I call those principles. strategy is somethng animal of cuning higher than reasoj or passion maybe? I dunno I mean in a scale of nested heirarchies, it's at the top

NachtWulf

When you say 'principles', opening principles come to mind: develop quickly and towards the center, castle ASAP, and other rule-of-thumb things that get you safely through most openings. Call it whatever you want, but I'll call it chess.

Nobody has to ever give you anything to work with, yet you still are able to hijack threads with pictures, poetry, and irrelevant stuff galore. Tongue out

Thank you!  But I believe that any reasonably intelligent person, by studying the process for 3 hours a day, should be able to do the same in 6 months. Smile

Hey, am I the only one who thinks that Dolfie looks like he's singing (in post #20)?

hleuk2

6 months.

What worries me is time isn't that fixed. If time travel/whe n time travel comes on eBay everything, including your memoris rae going to change all the time.

So tactiocs to strategy is what?

AndyClifton

All I want to do is get close enough to the speed of light to where I can see all four sides of a building...

That would be cool.
