    I followed every main line and analysis in my head. If you are a believer in the hard-work concept, then know that it applies to chess too. For this I recommend the following books: Chess Tactics for Students by John Bain I put all of the positions into Chessbase so that I could quickly go over them even when I just have my laptop. There are 5, puzzles so this is a book I am still working through.

    Working hard on each part of the game, like the calculation ability, will lead you very far and increase your Elo. The same is especially true for all positions that have multiple in-between moves or different move orders. Need more basic patterns? Most books about chess tactics follow one of two patterns. Obviously, great sets can come in the form of books, CD's, DVD's, flashcards - the form is not important for content.

    This and many other books show that many times it doesn't matter what the engines say: if you can understand the ideas being taught, then the lesson is valuable. In a simple, easy-to-understand format it explains how to bamboozle your chess opponents using commonly occurring tactical motifs. You must iterate over and over all those positions, until you get them right. This site goes into greater detail than other books do in explaining each type of tactic and how to overcome the various obstacles that can arise in trying to make it work. Grandmaster Murray Chandler finished second in the World Cadet Championship inahead of Garry Kasparov, whom he defeated in their individual game.

Simple Chess Tactics book

In fact, even this very article of mines, limited to tactical training, contains 2 books of him. You must iterate over and over all those positions, until you get them right. Then I also created a database where I combined all the other databases.

Thus every example here is accompanied by commentary explaining not just the right moves but a train of thought that leads from the position to its solution. Seeing the simple tactics doesn't just mean in books, it means in your own games as well.

And sure, you should really work through them as hard as you can, almost memorizing each diagram if you can! You must keep your tactical vision sharp, with a continuous practice and on a daily basis.

I think it could be very beneficial to create your own database of positions that you did NOT solve correctly. The other sort of book presents pages of diagrammed problems for the reader to solve; the answers usually are given in the back with minimal commentary.

Stop the clock and compare your analysis with the solution. Give yourself a maximum amount of time. Why Another Book About Them? Everything must happen into your head only When the time is over, just stop calculating, no matter where you were in the process.

Chess Tactics for Kids

Last, but totally not the least, the book contains a number of exercises. I like reading chess books in general, and proudly own multiple chess tactical books. But if you do share this sense of mine, and have not found that most books about chess explain it in a way that speaks to you or affects your play, perhaps this site will change your relationship to the game.

This whole site has now been made much friendlier for mobile devices thanks to the help of a kind and ingenious reader. This site—which amounts to another book, and not a short one—thus requires a few words of justification. It could be the only saving defensive tactic, play and win, or a positional idea.

So, what did you miss? Perfection is not as important as understanding. Most books about chess tactics follow one of two patterns. Thus fully maximizing your study time. The official results are finally on USCF.

My suggestion is to use the LiChess mobile app, that you can install for free in your cellphone. Grandmaster Murray Chandler finished second in the World Cadet Championship inahead of Garry Kasparov, whom he defeated in their individual game. Should you be getting the puzzles correct or learning from the puzzles?

The idea guides the experimentation. Every time a tactical pattern you know occurs in a game, name it out loud well, whisper it to yourself it at least.

Studying is just that, studying. Even online blitz games! At some point though, you will have to leave books aside and jump into the real word, or rather the real chessboard.

Sure, you can have the best books ever written on the subject, like the ones I am mentioning in this article.

Simple Chess Tactics by Tony Gillam (1978, Paperback)

It seems a counter-intuitive word for a combination. These are quite complex, but throughout books, each centered on a different subject.Chess tactics explained. This site teaches chess in words. It has two parts. 1. The first part is a book that explains chess tactics (that is, how to make winning moves).

It assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. Everything is explained progressively and in plain English. You can read it by clicking anyplace in the table of contents below. Now, about the games: selecting them was not a simple task, considering that so many works on tactics and aggression were on the chess book market and that I was categorically opposed to repeating other people’s analyses.

It is for this latter reason, and not at all out of unbridled narcissism, that I have included many games of my own. Jan 12,  · Tactics Training Method #1. Get better at seeing simple tactics and simple mating patterns.

For this I recommend the following books: Chess Tactics for Students by John Bain; I put all of the positions into Chessbase so that I could quickly go over them even when I just have my laptop.

Jan 26,  · By Jeremy Silman, International Chess Master There are no shortages of chess tactics, from highly complicated, to the super-simple. However, there are a few that occur all the time.

These are a major part of your chess foundation, because if you don’t know them, you’ll be blown out of the water time and time again. This is a book where you will find the same problems, without the detail and explanation in his " Winning Chess Sacrifices and Combinations" - the difference is two fold, 1.

You get explanation of the tactics here (good point). 2. Far fewer problems (bad point). 3. His most simple problems to solve - good if you are a beginner or just above/5(3).
