Let's take a look at some easy tactics from my online games. Practicing tactics is critical if you hope to become a strong player.
1. Black to move
2. White to move
3. Black to move
1. 1. ...Nxd4! and Black wins a huge central pawn, 2. Qxd5? loses to Bc5
2. 1. Qxc6!+ Kb8 2.Qxb7 mate
3. Here Black played 1. ...Bd7? and eventually lost. 1. ...0-0-0!+ wins the rook on b7 because it's check.
