Boa Constrictor Attacking Style

Boa constrictor style of attacking chess is a slow methodical way to win at chess. It is also commonly called “Domination Chess”. The idea is to gradually squash your opponent backwards until they are very passive and have no good moves. Once the enemy has been made powerless, then you commence your attack.

The idea is not to attack too early. You gradually accumulate extra space, extra mobility, and slowly push back the enemy to lesser space. This also involves “prophylaxis” against any counter-attack or freeing moves that the enemy might try to escape. If successful, the enemy has no useful way to attack, cannot escape the grip on their position, and they slowly succumb. Like prey getting squashed by a boa constrictor.
