Thursday January 25th 0 tactics

It is said the very act of measuring, drives self improvement. So Thursday January 25th I did 0 tactical problems.

    well done keep going. You next tactical problem will either be a 100% improvement or failure

    Who said tactics were 99% of the game? My guess is that, if he applied that to actually studying tactics, he burned out 99% faster than the normal Joe.

    I know a bit about chess openings. :)

    Still, the dirty little secret is that tactics are king in every phase of the game. If you want a great book on chess openings - that does not teach you how to play a single opening - get Neishtadt's Catastrophe in the Chess Opening which is not to be confused with a newer book with the same name.
