"Chess is 99% tactics". That famous quote might be a slight overstatement, but tactics are an essential part of the game. Tactics are forcing moves that lead to a quick advantage. Strategy, in contrast, is more about implementing longer-term plans.
In order to become a good tactician you need to practice the most important motifs over and over again. Our Tactics Trainer helps you with that. You are shown a position that allows tactical opportunities. Your task is to find the correct moves. Most often the goal is to win material or deliver mate, though some also train your defensive skills.
The more you use the Tactics Trainer, the faster you'll spot motifs in your games!
