Discovered attack & skewer
The discovered attack is a strong weapon. Let alone if you combine it with another powerful attacking trick. In this lesson, you'll combine the discovered attack with a skewer.
Do you remember what a skewer is?
A skewer is an attack that goes right through another piece.
Skewers are similar to pins, but just the other way around.
In a pin, the piece of higher value is behind a piece of lesser value.
In a skewer, the more valuable piece is in front of the lesser piece.
If the other player saves the valuable front piece, you can take the back piece.
In the example, you see how a skewer is combined with a discovered attack to create an ultra-smart chess trick.
Another word for skewer is X-ray attack. An X-ray is a machine that can see through things. In an X-ray attack a chess piece sees trough an enemy piece to attack a piece beyond it.
