This publication is a collection of over 200 best combinations played by strong chess players in tournaments that took place in the first quarter of 2016. To see the solution for the combination - go to the next page in your e-reader. This book is the fifth in the "Quarterly Tactics" series, which provides instructive tactical positions from the most recent top chess tournaments. Quarterly Chess Tactics will allow you to
    * Follow the recent games of top grandmasters
    * Improve your game
    * Study combinations any time and anywhere
    * Enjoy a collection of annotated puzzles that you have not seen in any other tactics books
    * Maintain regular practice by solving several puzzles every day

For the purpose of this collection, the author used Mikhail Botvinnik's definition of a combination, which defines it as "a forced maneuver or maneuvers combined with a sacrifice, as a result of which the active side gains an objective advantage." All the puzzles have been carefully checked to ensure the correctness and uniqueness of solutions, so the reader can be certain that there is only one winning continuation in each position.

The highlight of this edition is the game that was the culmination of the 2016 Candidates Tournament in Moscow and ended the tense event that drew the attention of the entire chess world for almost a month. In a must win situation, Caruana overpushed against Karjakin, and Sergey delivered a rook sacrifice that won the game and made him a challenger to Magnus Carlsen in a match to be held later in the year. This dramatic game showed once again that good tactical vision is essential for reaching the top in chess. Since his very young days Karjakin was known for great ability to spot chess combinations, and at a critical moment his second nature did not let him down despite the enormous pressure that both players were under.
