|Aug-25-08|| ||DoctorD: In Lerne Kombinieren, Mueller posits that, based on a study of 8,000 games played in the first part of the 20th century, 82% were decided by tactical means.|
An interesting comment in comparison to Teichmann's dictum, although what each means.....

|Dec-01-08|| ||brankat: R.I.P. Master Mueller.
Regarding the "tactics statistics" it would be interesting to compare the numbers to their counterparts of the first part of the 19th century :-)
Probably close to 100% decided via tactical means. Second half of the century considerably less, I'd assume, thanks to Steinitz and his followers.
I'd be interested to know how does the second half of the 20th century stack up.
Also, one has to keep in mind that to try to distinguish between the "tactical" and "positional/strategic" one often has to accept a borderline designation. Namely, it's hard to tell which aspect actually decided the outcome.
As integral parts of viewing and conducting the game, they go hand in hand, to compliment/supplement each other, but are discussed, studied...separately, for the purposes of Methodics.
Fascinating stuff, nonetheless.
|Jun-23-09|| ||Sem: Hans Müller was the author of a book on Botvinnik that must have been a joy to Soviet officials at the time, since he bent over backwards to please them.|
