Let's learn a tactic!
I hated tactics for the longest time. My teammates had to drag me kicking and screaming into them.... I was always getting them wrong..
But practice, practice, practice. I'm getting them more often now. I am to a point now where I can sometimes recognize them in games and that's actually a HUGE step.
I had a game the other day where I did pretty well. At one point, I had a candidate move but didn't play it as I wasn't sure it was the right thing to do.
But it would have been a beautiful move and led to a wonderful tactic! My stronger teammate went over this with me and we explored what I could have done. (Remember my teammate once said I have good intuition but have trouble knowing WHY something is a strong move? Prime example right here...)
Anyway, this was a new tactic for me as I hadn't heard of it before. I'll discuss what it is in the puzzle.
It's a beautiful tactic. I hope I get a chance to use it!
