  1. Nice tactics, put together well, which is what I’ve come to expect of Tim. The only “flaw” I’ve found I think comes from it being “reprinted”: it claims the answers are on page 16 — of a 3 page pdf! lol I imagine when it was in the Colorado Chess Informant, the answers were indeed on page 16.

    Thanks, Tim, for a nice variety of tactical problems to work through. I love this stuff and I have seen mega-improvement that I believe is the direct result of working through the problems in Tim’s newsletter. :)

      • Wow, I am impressed with the magazine! I think I am going to have to look about and see if there is anything similar here in Tennessee. :) I did notice one other flaw in the pdf I got here. The second problem should be white to move (and is in the magazine) but is listed as “color to move”. :D
