Just looking for opinions here. You're playing against an opponent of approximately the same strength as yourself, it's the middle-game, your position is about even, you've run out of attacking ideas and can find no way to improve your position. What do you do?
1. Find a forcing move, and make something happen, even though the outcome is unclear.
2. Seek to place your pieces on their best defensive squares, and wait for your opponent to declare their intentions.
3. Find a sound move just to save yourself from violating time control, though it's of no real help.
4. Something else (specify)
