Many times when a top player blunders, it is routinely described by the esoteric term ‘chess blindness.’
In the series What Grandmasters Don’t See, chess trainer and world-class commentator Maurice Ashley strips away the myth, and for the first time explains why the root of these mistakes is more often based on the psychology of human learning.
In this DVD, Volume 2 of the three-part series, Ashley shows that no other standard tactical theme is more over-rated, overlooked, and misunderstood than the Discovered Attack.
In each example, Ashley illustrates how often players are confused by discovered attacks because the examples in the majority of chess books are poorly chosen to show how this important tactical idea really works in most practical games.
In the first half of the DVD, Ashley uses interesting and entertaining positions to explain the points in his trademark effervescent style.
The second half of the DVD is filled with examples to test what you have learned about discovered attacks, with a series of exercises of increasing difficulty. The material is drawn both from classic and from recent games.
