Anyway, i did not see the tactics which led to the positional disadvantage so was my blunder more tactical or positional in nature?
although a tactic is usually defined as winning (or not losing, as in 'only saving move'
material, I'd be inclined to say your mistake was more tactical in its nature. you should have at least considered the exchange sac in tactical sense. that is, if you didn't see it coming. -if you saw it, but underestimated the danger in the resulting position, the mistake was more positional, I think.
