A moment of shock 10/9/2015 – Tactics can seem deceptively simple, particularly when seeing an engine analysing grandmaster games. Strange, however, how difficult it is to find the right move and to calculate variations properly when playing yourself. It is easier if you solve tactical puzzles regularly. In the ChessBase Magazine and his tactics column Oliver Reeh helps you to do so. Discuss

Isle of Man: Nigel Short wins brilliancy 10/8/2015 – Nigel Short, born 1. June 1965, is the oldest player in the World's top 100. And he is still tactically alert. Which he proved in round 5 of the Isle of Man PokerStars Open when he countered a dangerous piece sacrifice by Alon Greenfeld with a countersacrifice, which brought him a quick win. With 4.0/5 Short now shares the lead with ten other players. Discuss

Quotes Of The Day (from Kelly Atkins)

"We are amongst those who would be glad to see the ancient game burst through the barriers of social rank and gladden every walk of life, so that the handicraftsman and the laborer, after the day's toil, might find pleasure in a recreation which would give them no headache next day, and would leave their pockets in a satisfactory condition." William Norwood Potter

"Chess is, after all, one of the greatest intellectual challenges devised by Man and its supreme prize should be decided by who can out-think his opponent, not by who can shift wood fastest and punch the clock quickest in a blitz finish." Tim Harding
