'''[[Chess]] strategy and tactics''' have evolved through the centuries as the most successful players have added to the body of knowledge. It has been learned that for a player to maximize his winning chances, he must rapidly mobilize all of his chess pieces and provide them with significant manuvering room, while simultaneously preventing his opponent from doing the same. This so-called "positional" approach to chess is the basis for modern chess strategy. Of course, good positioning of pieces only creates ''opportunities'' for victory. In order to close the game and win, a player must make accurate calculations of sequences of moves (variations) that lead either to outright victory, or to a significant advantage, all the while preventing such sequences from being played by the opponent.
In contrast to the positional concepts that underlie chess strategy, chess tactics enable a player to leverage the way the pieces move, along with the geometry of the chessboard, to immediately accomplish various useful objectives, often against the will of their opponent. These objectives include such things as bolstering or thwarting attacks on the kings, eliminating a larger portion of the opponent's fighting force than one's own, or otherwise posing undesired difficulties for the opponent.
It has been considered by [[Chess master]]s that increasing the positional advantages leads to a greater number of favorable tactical possibilities.
