Yes, I am a Chess Tactics server Junkie! Skip the morning paper! I want tactics problems to my first cup of coffee.
However, life sometimes interferes with my morning ritual but I have found the perfect counter measure: “Practical Chess Exercises” by Ray Cheng
So, is it yet another collection of tactics problem? Not quite! This little darling is a collection of all sorts of problems: tactics, blunder alerts, positional…… you name it! The really neat thing is that you do not know what to look for! You really have to think about the position and find a good move. The problems are pretty advanced from time to time but the solutions are very clear and informative. A gem!
Most sadistic mate in history.
