Sam Palatnik and Lev Alburt. The Comprehensive Chess Course is based on the method of repeatedly presenting certain problems to students. The problems become progressively more difficult, combining new ideas with familiar ones, thereby broadening the student’s knowledge and simultaneously reinforcing previously mastered material. Like the two previous volumes, Chess Tactics for the Tournament Player is designed to be an ideal self-study guide. Virtually all the material is self-explanatory.

I give this book out to my players...

I own several tactics books. This book is a bit longer, though the material covered is a bit different. There are about 250 diagrams total, I think. Lots of white space. Reading is very entertaining. Some examples are more challenging than others. I actually bought the other tactics instruction book because I thought this one was too advanced when I looked at the first example. Later I read further and found the rest were much easier. I'm glad I have both books since they cover some different stuff. This book does not just cover tactics. It also covers sacrificial attacks on the castled king, though not nearly as much as his other book, The King in Jeopardy, which I also have.

I'm not saying this is the best book there is, but it definitely is well worth reading. I'm happy I have it. I've not finished it, so I can't say it helped my rating. In fact, I've been studying many chess books and my rating has not climbed yet, though I feel like my knowledge has.

If you are serious about chess and want to improve, then this book is for you. It is just like a textbook and it should be read from cover to cover. However, it's difficult to get anywhere with this book unless you dedicate an hour a day to it almost every day. The examples are great and the explanations are good. If you are serious about chess, then this book may be the one for you.

This is not a one stop shopping on tactics but it is a good place to start. This book will improve your tactics skill, especially for beginners.

If this book were truly representative of "the once-secret Russian method of chess training" no Soviet player would ever have become a grandmaster in the entire course of chess history. This book simply does not live up to the hype. Keep in mind as you read the following that according to the authors the alleged goal for these books is "to provide the knowledge necessary to reach expert strength." Nobody is going to reach anything remotely near expert strength using this book or its companions.

My complaints are numerous:

[1] The material oscillates between being absurdly simple for the alleged target audience to being absurdly unclear. For example, at one point they explain what a pin is. Elsewhere, they provide a complicated example from the Fischer-Spassky 1972 match with absolutely zero commentary.

[2] The examples are too many and too sparsely commented (many have no comments at all) to be of any use to a student trying to learn from them. As just one ridiculous example, page 180 contains a 19-move analysis with a single comment ("now follows a beautiful variation"); well, thanks, that was very useful. The famous game Lasker-Bauer, Amsterdam 1889, merits comment to only one move as well.

[3] Many of the examples are downright useless, consisting of a single move. We are given no indication of how the position was arrived at or how the magical move (1. Qa7!!) was arrived at or even why it merits two exclamation points.

The bottom line is if you are rated below 1700, you will not learn anything from this book, so try Jeremy Silman's or Yasser Seirawan's books instead. And if you are rated above 1700, you will not learn anything from this book either, so try Dvoretsky's well-respected series.

Books on chess tactics and chess traps are very useful for improving your game. There are a lot of books on tactics and a small number on chess traps (openings tactics). When comparing CHESS TACTICS FOR THE TOURNAMENT PLAYER to my other book "Learn Chess Tactics" and "Winning Chess Traps" I can say this book is jumpy and often not very clear. It goes from a simple position to work on using one pattern, then jumps to a totally unrelated type of pattern that is very difficult. It is like getting a wild card every time. It still gets three stars because there are some good problems to work on that are helpful to improving your game.

Before deciding if a book is good or not, I always try to determine what level of player the material is aimed at. In this case, I believe that players rated below 1500 will benefit greatly from reading this book, since it provides simple examples for several of the main combination motifs. These players would have a much harder time reading other more advance books, like "Attack and Defense" by Dvoretsky, "The Art of Attack in Chess" by Vukovic, etc.

Players in the range 1500 and 1900 will not find this book as helpful, but will probably still appreciate the refresher course found through some of the examples. This is the range where I am currently at (USCF 1800), and even though I solved ninety percent of the exercises in a few seconds, it helped me as a kind of remainder of motifs to look for in my games. I also found that there are several examples that are a little more advanced and that provided reasonable challenge.

Finally, players at expert level will not get any use out of this book and will probably feel cheated, so if you are in this range do not bother with it.

Now, being clear on what the target audience for this book is, the material is pretty good and serves its purpose. The only reason why I am taking one star away from its rating is because of a few examples that do not correspond with the level of the book and are poorly explained.

For those players that are currently below 1500 and want to improve their attacking skills, I recommend to read this book and keep going over it until you fully understand the totality of concepts presented. Then you can build on it by studying "The Art of Attack in Chess", which is in my opinion the best manual of this type in the market, even though it may be outdated and some of the examples are not thoroughly accurate.
