Welcome to The Chess Tactician Blog!

Hi Everyone
I am an intermdiate chess enthusiast (BCF 92) who enjoys discussions about chess openings, middle game tactics and endings ...

I realise that learning chess tactics is the only real way to improve at chess so I am doing a number of puzzles during the day.

I started off with Gary Lane's book - "Find the Checkmate" and also "Learn Chess" by Alexander and Beach - both are really good books! I have now moved on to Sharpen Your
Tactics by Lein and Archangelsky. Up until no. 500 the problems in this book are reasonably easy. My problem however, is that I'm quite a slow player and sometimes take a long time to find appropriate candidate moves for some of the problems in this book!

I think the weakest part of my game is lack of credible plan in the middle game.
Any advice would be welcome ...
