The third in a three volume series on chess tactics training.Sample pages (pdf)
Knowledge of openings, middlegames, endgames, strategy, technique, realization of the advantage and similar is also extremely important. But all this knowledge doesn't help us if we don't calculate properly! Every chess player must solve as many puzzles as possible in order to grow stronger.
In the first book of the series the authors demonstrated a slightly different approach to studying tactics - they chose tactical elements according to a great champion, Vasily Smyslov. The second volume was devoted to much more complicated tactical ideas and motifs. The final book of the trilogy is a kind of manual for calculation of variations and decision making in complicated positions.
Some exercises are more difficult, appropriate even for the GMs! The third volume is recommended for stronger players - over 2000 ELO rating.
The third book in the series is divided into two parts:
1. A theoretical part showing examples of various tactical themes and ideas.
2. Exercises and solutions for level for each theme outlined in the theoretical section.
In the series, volume 1 is appropriate for players with rating up to 1800, volume 2 for rating up to 2100 and volume 3 for rating above 2000.
