What major strategies do you have besides forking (I think that’s what it’s called) and controlling the center of the board?

I was learning with some hardcore folks, and those are the two tactics I can remember.

that helps for sure.

but the matches that i won in the past its mostly developing pieces into a somewhat agile position where defending and attacking accord to more natural moves although i need to read a book on chess im kinda stuck at 1100/1200.

endgame routine is also very useful for when you have a shitty position and just trade everything off and then rush the endgame. but that takes a “muscle memory” to play sovereign.

other than that: keep the diagonals sharp, the pawns protected and the rooks connected.
