      Invisible Chess Moves
      Discover Your Blind Spots and Stop Overlooking Simple Wins
      Catalog Code: B0105NIC

      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.
