The July 2004 issue of Tactics Time featured some interesting positions.

In the first position Paul Grimm showed why he was known as the “swindle master”, and is a good argument for the “never resign” school of thought.

Problem #5 between Randy Reynolds and Cory Foster is a good example of the “when you see a good move, look for a better one” rule, and the correct move is an interesting, counter intuitive one.

Problem #7 is a good example of the “overloaded piece” motif.

Other players featured include Renae Delaware, Paul Anderson, Anthea Carson, and J.C. MacNeil.
