Remove the guard & discovered attack

In this lesson, you will again deal with a defender by combining two tactics. This time, the discovered attack (or short: disco) is your extra weapon.

Take a look at the example to see how it works.

Chess fact
If two (or more!) pieces are lined up and ready for an attack (as in the example the white knight and the bishop), this is called a battery in chess. 
The term battery is used in the army when there are several types of weapons lined up. So it has nothing to do with a battery as a source of energy.

What do you have to do?

Win material or checkmate your opponent with one of the techniques to remove defenders (capturing, deflection or decoy) in combination with a discovered attack.
