Especially at the level of the beginner, games are frequently characterized by tactics, whether subtle or brilliant. Strategy seems to play little part in victories, if at all, as players must first learn to fend off simple combinations. Given these conditions, beginner games usually start off with a bang from the start and keep on going, despite numerous blunders from each side. In the words of the great chess master Teichmann, "Chess is 99% tactics"; and certainly still today tactics are one of the most amazing, and beautiful parts of this great game. Always be on the lookout!

 

Thank You and Good Luck!
