    i plan to do some  tactics on a real board... i am using "WINNING CHESS" by Chernev and Reinfeld


    i also do tactics trainer here but OTB i see tactics not so fast or not at all!

    i tried once to start a topic to make puzzles out of this book but it's much work... i can better take pictures when i have set up the board... first a picture where i thought of this
