Your Playing Style

HI, I wanna know the playing style of our chessmood family. It's so cool to know how many of your likes attacking chess, positional chess or may be universal players. 

Note: If possible then share the names of books which improved your current style so other can learn from those valuable books.

About me: 

~The Beginning ~

It's funny because I am novice so I thought I wanna become a positional chess player. So when I had one on one call with coach I told him I love positional play and I wanna become very good in positional chess. So after I joined chessmood and joined every webinar and streams I do not know but I started to play so aggressive. I do not know but patterns which I saw in streams sometimes comes in my mind and I win many games with attacking skills. But chessmood streams also improved my positional play. I heard many times from coach Gabuzyan (This pawn is weak so let me fix the pawn then I will win this) Yes, for strong players it's simple thing to say but for a novice like me I felt so excited to see the outcome of his words on board and in the end his technique of fixing a weakness then win it worked well. So I learnt like oh if I wanna win a pawn then fixing it then winning is best idea. I know it depends on positions but normally this is the idea.  


Now my mindset is totally changed. I like to play the position. If the position is quiet I play with slow approach and hope to win like Karpov or Ulf but if the position is based on initiative then timing is everything then I try to play like Shirov. Heheheh, I know they are world class masters but they are also human. If we follow their games and lessons we can also attack and defend and play positional like them . Now, I am just a universal player and improving my overall skills.
