Today’s winning 5-second tactics!
Wilhelm Steinitz on MSM in 1888
Between 1885 and 1891, World Champion Steinitz was founder and editor of International Chess Magazine. Besides the fantastic chess material that could be found here, Steinitz also entertained the reader with his fiery brand of principled journalism:
‘‘ I have always shown fight ultimately, and I fought with my pen soundly and on principle, free from delusions and deceptions, just like on the chess board.’’
Today I present some nine (9) examples of Steinitz’ electric prowess in tactics. PGN can be downloaded at the end. Good Luck!
