Introduction to Positional Mastery
Games in which Carlsen takes away all active play from his opponent. This is probably the worst-case scenario against such a well-rounded and strong player because he is extremely methodical in converting even the smallest of advantages.
Games in which Carlsen slowly improves his position to the point where his opponent is positionally outplayed without even being aware of where he went wrong.
Taking youngsters to ‘positional school’
Carlsen’s games against the strongest players of the younger generation (born in late 1990-ies) in which he proves his positional superiority over them.
Anyone has tried to beat a very solid player with black pieces in a tournament game, knows that this is one of the most difficult tasks.
This is one of Carlsen’s greatest strengths. He is very crafty when it comes to keeping the tension and finding maneuvers and small positional plots to provoke weaknesses in opponent’s position.
Carlsen loves the pawn center. Sometimes all he needs is a well-defended pair of pawns in the center and then he proceeds to outmaneuver his strong opponents in a static positional fight.
Pawn Structure II
He rarely compromises his own pawn structure, unless it will bring him some very concrete advantages of other sort. Meanwhile, he is very alert to the ways that he can compromise his opponent’s pawn structure and build his long-term strategy around that.
This is a well-known positional device. Carlsen is very creative when it comes to positional pawn sacrifices, able to surprise his world-class opponents with sacrifices that rely on deep positional concepts.v
Complex Middlegame I
Games that feature many positional themes and in which Carlsen shows the full extent of his positional talent.
Complex Middlegame II
Carlsen displays the highest level of positional skill by outplaying his rivals in positionally complex middlegames.
