Th is book is the continuation of the successful puzzle-book series, which started with the “Greatest 365 Puzzles” and “Greatest 501 Puzzles” from the practical games of 2012. This was followed by “Tactics, Tactics, Tactics!” Volume 3 and Volume 4, which covered the best practical puzzles of 2013–2015.
The next one of the series was the “Greatest 551 Puzzles” with the combinations of 2016, followed by the “Greatest 550 puzzles” from 2017 and the “Greatest 525 puzzles” from 2018. Due to the great feedback from our readers, we decided to publish the puzzle-book on a half-yearly basis. The “Greatest 460 Puzzles” covered the first part of 2019 while the “Greatest 468 Puzzles” concluded the second part.
Due to the current global situation, chess tournaments occurred in limited numbers throughout 2020. The chess world turned to online chess and there was huge activity with numerous online events, with many different time controls, though mainly blitz and rapid. Our favorite chess players also competed in many tournaments, so we did not have to miss them completely during this difficult period.
This new book is our “Jubilee” as it is the 10th in the series. It contains 440 puzzles and they are divided into 3 chapters. You will fi nd a huge range of tactical ideas that you can use in your own games! All the puzzles have been collected from online games throughout the year 2020. In each section, the puzzles are sorted according to the date of the game.
The book consists of three chapters:
1. Easy (233 Puzzles)
2. Medium (146 Puzzles)
3. Hard (61 Puzzles)
All in all, 440 puzzles created by the greatest masters of our time, maestros such as Carlsen, Caruana, Ding Liren, Vachier-Lagrave, and many more.
