CJS Purdy had it spot on!

As simple as it may sound, CJS Purdy wrote that the double-attack is the key to chess. And I couldn't agree more! Maybe once someone is up to an 2000-2200 level, positional play becomes the main concern. But I think for any average chessplayer, mastering the double attack means mastering the fundamental tactic of the middle-game.
