Don't worry, finding a good middle game plan is not easy for a beginner and takes some experience to develop as there is often more than one option to follow. It is not something you can generalize or …

difficult and just about impossible if you are on your own. Ideally you'd have another, better player look over your games and point out some problems with your strategy. For passive learning of strategy

I assume that by "attacking play" you mean a direct attack (mating attack) against the enemy king. This question is too general to be answered unless all you want is a recommendation for study resour …

I think you partially answered the question yourself. I can think of 3 scenarios. In very closed positions like this game of Nakamaura against Rybka neither side may be able to improve the position, …

Usually if there is a blocked pawn chain one is trying to attack it close to its base with a pawn from the side. For instance, in the classical king's Indian black is playing f5 (not c6) and later (i …

: tactics/calculation positional play/strategy Tactics/calculation ... is when you actually calculate concrete variations, i.e. something like: if I make this move, my opponent does this, to which … /strategy .. this is based more on intuition, experience, general principles and is much harder to train than tactics/calculation.

This is a game between beginners. Nothing wrong with that, but there is not much point at this level giving a very deep explanation as to the "why". Both players should pay more attention to not bl …

Your analysis is pretty much to the point. I am not a 1. d4 or Slav player, but the opening looks fine to me. Basically you liked the (sham) sacrifice starting with 14 e4 so much that you ignored th …

Several reasons I can think of: black is obviously playing on the kingside and Qe8 is a useful move aiming to transfer the queen to f7, g6 or perhaps h5 later. Also it might be useful to push e4 lat …

In my view a chess opening is characterized by a typical pawn structure and plans associated with it. As such a single move like 1. e3 should not deserve to be called "opening' because there are no id …

Nf5 ...Qh7, Nd6+ (discovered attack) wins the queen. Note that any other attempts to save the queen fails: Nb4 or Nce7 or Nge7 or Nf6 with the idea to attack the white queen fail because Nxg7+ is ch …
