Experts agree that regularly solving tactics is a vital component of chess training. However, it's also widely acknowledged that there is one drawback of traditional chess puzzlesówhen solving them students know for sure that there is a genuine tactic in the position, whereas during a real game there is no such guarantee.

In this workbook, Volker SchlepŁtz and Grandmaster John Emms offer a unique framework to study chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty andómost importantlyóeven the existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analyzing carefully selected games, from beginner level through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, checking for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilitiesówhether they exist or not. The same thinking processes used in the training can then be applied in real games.
  • A unique framework to practice chess tactics
  • Exercises resemble over-the-board situations
  • Ideal for beginners, intermediate and club players
