Csaba BaloghSample pages (pdf)
This book is the continuation of the successful puzzle-book series. The new book is the 8th in the series and it contains 460 puzzles divided into 3 chapters. You will find a huge range of tactical ideas that you can use in your own games!
All the puzzles have been collected from practical games throughout the first half of 2019. In each section, the puzzles are sorted according to the date of the game.
The book consists of three chapters:
1. Easy (270 Puzzles)
2. Medium (135 Puzzles)
3. Hard (55 Puzzles)
All in all 460 puzzles created by the greatest masters of our time, such as Carlsen, Caruana, Ding Liren, Anand and many more.
I advise you to try to solve all the combinations in each chapter one-by-one, because a less difficult solution from the "Easy" section might be even more brilliant from the beauty point-of-view than a tough puzzle from the "Hard" section. Even if a puzzle can be solved easily, it sharpens your tactical skills and makes it so much easier to find solutions in a practical game, even under difficult circumstances.
To be tactically sharp is one of the basic requirements for a successful chess player!
