Positional Chess Help!

  • #1

    I have been trying to increase my positional awareness in chess. I have not read any books or had any teachers. I've been trying to employ ideas from articles and forums on chess.com and here is a game I'd like some feedback on. How did I do with my positional study? In this game in particular, I was attempting to not do so many viariations and simply play positonal ideas like space, bad piece/good piece, exposed king, etc etc.

    Let me know where I make mistakes or where my comments are inaccurate, please.

    I think his resignation was fine, as when I studied the variations I was ahead at least a piece. Also note that combinations where Nxb6, Nxb6 Bxe6 forks were nice to look at but I was worried i wouldn't be able to convert it into a win and I would be left with a very bad pawn structure and bishop. But regardless of that, I was more curious of how I did by playing the position? I was very happy with how I spotted the Bd3/Bc4/Bb3/Nc4 combination. Normally I would just try to attack all the time with a rook lift or some other move. So was my analysis on the positon correct? Thanks for feedback.

    I've read articles on chess.com...namely gserper's openings for tactical players and other various articles by silman and arun/magesh. i know some openings to a certain point. I also have been playing for awhile so I have experience with some ideas and game situations.

    I'm simply asking how I played. How did I play the game? How did I evaluate the positon? Was I accurate or did I miss some important ideas?
