A chess tactic is a sequence of moves that leads to some sort of tangible gain. This could be delivering checkmate, winning material, or obtaining some other sort of advantage.

 

For most players, practicing tactics is what helps take their games to the next level. However, getting started with learning tactics isn't a simple endeavor.

 

I thought that it would make sense to make this concept easy to understand for the average chess player, so I've made a video that introduces basic tactics like the pin and the skewer. I would love to hear your feedback!
