Increase Chess Piece Mobility
Control vital Center Squares

Many players don't understand how to place their pieces actively. Many put them on bad squares and this reduces the flexibilty of other pieces.

Sometimes a chess piece is placed badly and has no room to move about. In this case you can win a piece by simply attacking it. Those situations are hard to see so train your mental chess-eye to see it when it occurs.
