Invisible Chess Moves
Discover Your Blind Spots and Stop Overlooking Simple Wins
by Neiman & Afek
New In Chess
Every chess player knows that some moves are harder to see than others.
Why is it that, frequently, uncomplicated wins simply do not enter your mind? Even strong grandmasters suffer from blind spots that obscure some of the best ideas during a game. What is more: often both players fail to see the opportunity that is right in front of their eyes.
FM Emmanuel Neiman and IM Yochanan Afek have researched this problem and discovered that there are actually identifiable reasons why your brain discards certain ideas. In this book they demonstrate different categories of hard-to-see chess moves and clearly explain the psychological, positional and geometric factors which cloud the chess player's brain.
Invisible Chess Moves, with its many unique examples, instructive explanations and illuminative tests, will teach you how to discover your blind spots and see the moves which remain invisible for others. Your results will improve dramatically because your brain will stop blocking winning ideas.
Steve Goldberg, ChessCafe:
"A thoroughly delightful book, full of incredible examples that remind us how challenging chess can be."
"The many training exercises make 'Invisible Chess Moves' a tactics training book and, what's more, numerous games convey the beauty of chess."
