Experts agree that regularly solving tactics is a vital component of chess training. However, it's also widely acknowledged that there is one drawback of traditional chess puzzles―when solving them students know for sure that there is a genuine tactic in the position, whereas during a real game there is no such guarantee.

In this workbook, Volker Schlepütz and Grandmaster John Emms offer a unique framework to study chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty and―most importantly―even the existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analyzing carefully selected games, from beginner level through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, checking for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilities―whether they exist or not. The same thinking processes used in the training can then be applied in real games.

The concept of this book is new for me, it is an approach on tactics that will benefit anybody who is willing to try it. Think Blitz game reflexes.
All the 120 are in the pgn, I have not mentioned the names of the players but it is in the book anyway.
Have fun!
