Tactics play a very important part in chess. Even the quietest positions can suddenly present an opportunity to win material or even checkmate. That is why we have to be alert at all times, ready to take advantage when the chance arises.

Polgar’s Tactical Secrets makes things easier by looking at the different types of tactical motifs and seeing how they can appear in games. Even at the Super GM level, we see pins, forks and surprising intermediate moves winning games. Often the final moves comes at the end of a 2 or 3 move sequence so spotting the potential for the tactic is crucial.

This course will show you how to set up combinations with forcing moves; give you a ton of new tactical patterns and ideas plus reveal what features of the position suggest a possible winning sequence.
