Chess Tactics for Intermediates:
Know the basics stronger to become a better player

by Karthik PM


In this book I have explained all the little concepts and its types clearly. I have made this book completely reader friendly and without any coach you can manage to understand everything and will be able to teach someone else too! I have given all the necessary concepts precisely for easy understanding and to easily cover the book. I have illustrated various tactics with suitable examples, in the end of this book I have given some puzzles with detailed solution and player’s thinking process.

I have also instructed how a player should think while playing chess and how to calculate with logical reasoning. I have made an assumption that the player to whom this book is dedicated is not a beginner and the player knows all the basic movements in chess. At the end of this book you’ll be able to look at a chess position at a different dimension and whole new level! I have classified players into four different categories namely 1. Beginners, 2. Intermediates, 3. Advanced, 4. Expert, 5 Tactical chess games
