The strategy is a very important part of the chess game and, many times, slightly disregarded by club players, who usually like to attack and try to do it at any (positional) cost. If you are such a player and are thinking about giving strategy more thought, then the player we are going to present in this article could be the perfect start. He is known for his “correct” play, which has at times gotten him to be regarded as “dull”. He was also a master of defense and rarely attacked, but when he did so, it was in positions he felt he had full control.
His style of play led to many draws, but he remains one of the greatest players in the history of chess and one classic you must definitely study – it will help you improve your play a lot.
