Plug & play

by Oliver Reeh
3/25/2016 – Tactics can seem deceptively simple, particularly when seeing an engine analysing grandmaster games. Strange, however, how difficult it is to find the right move and to calculate variations properly when playing yourself. It is easier if you solve tactical puzzles regularly. In the ChessBase Magazine and his tactics column Oliver Reeh helps you to do so.

Awesome use of tactics.
There is attraction (the rook that sacrifies itself on e2), pin (the queen on e4 would hang after bxa6) , forks (nd2 and Nc3 and Bc6 after Qxa8) and backrank.
