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
i plan to do 3 a day .. but don't hold me to it :)
first 2 are white to play... the last one black to play
i will make the foto's from the side who has the move.... i don't know if i have to give the solutions of the last 3?? here they are
#1 1.Qh4+, Kg8 2.Qg3+m, Kh8 3. Bc3 ...wins the queen
#2 1.RxR, exR 2. e6, QxQ 3. KtxQ ... the bishop is lost e6 takes it
#3 1. ..., Bxh2+ 2. Kh1, Bc6 ... wins the queen
the next 3
maybe i should say it's all about pins... when chapter changes to knight forks i'll mention it... now solutions of the tactics above
#1 = 1...Bc5 , 2. Rd3. RxB, 3.RxR. Re8
#2 = 1.KtxP. BxKt , 2. RxB. QxB CANNOT (Bd5!) queen retreats 3.RxKt
#3 = 1.KtxB . RxKt , 2.BxKt. RxB . 3.b6 wins the Bishop
the first is BLACK to move ... the second WHITE
i cannot get the pictures in ..very strange... i get yesterdays pictures (above) wich are deleted from my computer ??... i'll try tommorow :((
still the same problem today...
