By Fred Reinfeld
First-class ebook chock-full of tactical workouts, from beautiful effortless to particularly tough. merely drawbacks are:
a) e-book is categorised into "themes". top to take a magic marker and blot out the subject less than, or simply open it at any web page and canopy the subject. it is easy adequate to understand there's a tactical blow (unlike our games!); no use to aid us extra by way of telling us what sort of tactic to appear for!
b) a number of the positions are too "swarming" with items. frequently, our video games should not so packed with 4-piece assaults at the king the place strategies are obvious.
I imagine the various positions are "elaborations" from online game occasions, and never reasonable. in spite of the fact that, many are really realistic-looking.
c) descriptive notation--oh good, very minor drawback.
Lazlo Polgar's large combos publication inclues six hundred "miniature video games" the place there's a tactical shot that's frequently a piece more durable to work out than Reinfeld's positions. yet that e-book too additionally lists issues like g2/g7 or f3/f6 on the best of the web page.
But changing into a tactical chess wiz is all approximately spotting tactical styles, so this e-book is a vintage and must-have for tacticians.
Just as soon as, i might prefer to see a publication of random positions, the place you need to pick out the easiest circulation (and the simplest circulate is especially transparent, selected via masters), and the stream might be strategic or tactical. Larry Evans comes shut, yet he nonetheless provides 2 offerings in his books, and plenty of of his positions are a piece too challenging.
