Tactics are a series of moves that puts you in an advantageous position by either winning material, checkmating your opponent, or giving you a positional advantage! There are many chess tactics like the fork, skewer, back rank mate, and more! Hercules Chess' puzzles are a great way to learn to spot tactics quickly and efficiently.

Although puzzles are not a one-stop solution to becoming a grandmaster in chess, they do train your mind to quickly and efficiently find chess tactics in game.
Puzzles, however, will not prevent you from getting yourself in a bad position in your games. If you do get into a bad position, no about of tactics knowledge will save you.
This is why we suggest training 10-15 minutes worth of puzzles a day and pair it along with other training like live games and openings practice!
