      The man who wrote, "Tactics is 99 per cent of chess," might well have added ? "and 99 per cent of the fun, too!"

      Brilliant sacrifices and combinations, either calculated in advance or played on the spur of the moment, give us thrills that cannot be equaled by any other aspect of the game. And, by a very fortunate coincidence, these brilliant strokes are just what we need to become first-rate players.
