INFO: 3400 positions
(each file 100) which were primarily taken from actual played
games. Each of the tactical combinations was either played
on the board in an actual match or could have been played
as a different variation.
Originally Auerswald created
these examples as "exercises" and tried to always
enter the main variation of the combination, even if the player
did not play the strongest defense. Or the containing combination
was not found in the real game, respectively. In
those games he wrote "Variante" or "Partievariante"
(variation of game) into the "Event" tag. However,
more than 90% of the moves are authentical, but basically
only the starting position occurred in the game and the variation/solution
could be different sometimes.
The solutions are
found at the end of each file. It is White to move unless
the game name is underlined, then it is Black to move.
