Examples from actual games illustrate a wide range of tactics from the classics right up to the current games. You'll learn to use pins, single and double forks, double attacks, skewers, discovered and double checks, multiple threat tactics-and other crushing tactics as part of their problem-solving challenges. Great stuff and fun too!

303 Tricky Chess Tactics is an excellent book that mostly presents 'realistic' tactical situations leading to material gains - a pawn,or a piece, the exchange - rather than 'brilliant' queen sacs or winning combinations leading to mate in five. In other words, you'll find positions here that are far more likely to occur in your games. Although not large the diagrams are easy to read and the solutions easy to find without seeing the answer to an unsolved problem. I have many tactics books, from beginner to advanced, and this is one of my favorites for review of basic tactics. The difficultly level is about 'advanced beginner' and the problems arranged thematically (e.g. forks, skewers, discoveries, etc.) You can buy Reinfeld's 1001 books, or advanced works containing 1000+ problems, but more (problems) is not necessarily better.
