It’s not a secret that tactics decide over 90% of games on the club level. Nevertheless, most club players spend over 90% of their time working on other things such as openings, positional chess, practice games and so forth.
Wouldn’t it make sense to spend a bit more time on something that actually decides the outcome of your games?
It is a well-known rule that 20% of the work we do creates 80% of the results. It is more so in chess, especially when it comes to tactics.
But there is a catch…
What most players do when it comes to tactics, is they simply solve truckloads of puzzles… There is nothing wrong with that approach; except it’s not very effective because one VERY IMPORTANT STEP IS MISSING.
Before you can find something you must know exactly what to look for!
There is no need to reinvent the wheel. You simply need to learn the tactical themes and motifs before attempting to look for them in your games.
It is as simple as that.
If you just learn the tactical themes, you will be ahead of your competition, because they skip this step, and pay a very high price in the long run…
In this 6-hour course, NM Viktor Neustroev is revealing everything from A to Z a club player needs to know about tactics.
Viktor does a great job explaining geometrical chess motifs such as Blockade, Opening of a file (rank, diagonal), Clearing the Space, Damming and X-Ray Attack. Next, he switches gears to the attacking motifs like Defense Annihilation, Decoying, Distraction, Discovered Attack, and Pursuit. Finally, he goes all the way into more advanced stuff like Stalemate, Material Restriction, Pawn Promotion, Intermediate Move, Tempo Gain and Destroying Pawn Cover.
Even if that sounds like a foreign language to you, don’t worry! After finishing this course you will be on your way to becoming the best tactician in the room.
