How To Become A Deadly Chess Tactician

Please try again later. This is a great book that lives up to its recommendations that said tactivian through the reviews you get the feeling it is advanced,cryptic, and maybe more of a puzzle book than an instruction manual. The kind of moves that setup brilliant checkmates. In the old days these were called “combinations” The author all but admits that the desire to create combinations adds risk and intensity to a chess game.

In other words you play this way, because you find that kind of chess fun. This is tal’s home turf and if you those kinds of games fun there is plenty of instruction in how to do it. Deflection, decoy, and clearance are brought up in nearly txctician tactics book. Although the “non forcing” sacrifice isn’t required study in chess, pychologically this book offers invaluable advice- don’t reflexively dismiss moves that lose material,Keep in mind there’s more dradly one way to checkmate a king, and sometimes sac a peice for a brutal attack on the king is a beautiful and unexpected way to win in chess.

All this tacticiam about what elo strength you need to be to understand or be enlightened by this tacticoan is a little silly. Any beginner that understands how to move and read chess notation can follow the chessgame. Knowing the checkmate patterns are important. There’s positions where these moves make sense and positions where they are suicidal. Perhaps the author could have covered more about when and eeadly to consider a non-forcing sacrifice. LeMoir’s book and Charles Hertan’s book “Forcing Chess Moves” appear different, but I feel they share an underlying partial similarity.

Hertan’s focus is odd or surprising forcing moves, and LeMoir’s focus is odd or surprising sacrifices.

Sacs are usually forcing, but LeMoir focuses a lot on “silent” sacrifices that can often ohw left unaccepted by the opponent. A silent sac is defined deacly “The sacrifice without a capture and without check”, often “surprising”. Each book has more strengths than weaknesses.

Both are exceptionally fun books to read. Another common strength is that each attempts an advanced categorization scheme: What Hertan does for odd forcing moves, LeMoir does for silent sacs.


Hertan more explicitly and repetitively talks about improving your Elo rating; whereas LeMoir mentions Elo improvement in his Introduction, but rarely repeats it among his puzzles. There is much more general text interspersed throughout LeMoir’s book.

I am surprised that these rather similar books have been received so differently by the chess book buying public I have no stake, know neither author etc.

Hertan’s book recently won Tacticiab on ChessCafe. Perhaps descriptive of the differences between these two books is their choice of games to cite from GM Nick de Firmian.

A deeadly puzzle book with lots of beautiful and classic tactical positions.

One thing that I have chesd mention is that puzzle 34 is Extremely tricky because there seems to be an alternative and equally plausible solution it goes Here i spent over an hour trying to find a win to no avail. The fact that this almost works makes this puzzle extremely hard and tricky. Also I thought puzzle 29 was quite beautiful. One person found this helpful. In one of my other reviews I got my LeMoir books mixed up. So many positions from the master games were not familiar to me and I own a lot of booksand his practical advice on finding combinations or cunning swindles is superb.

This is so cyess material crammed into these LeMoir books – months dfadly reading material rather than weeks or days.

A LeMoir trait is to give several similar examples of the same sacrificial or tactical concept, but in slightly varied settings, which is so helpful. Don’t let some other ignorant reviewers put you off – this is a book of real quality, which will give becomd a competitive edge in games. The five stars are fully deserved. See all 10 reviews.
