D Is For Discovery II

Posted by Paul Anderson on May 24, 2014 at 3:40 PM

Game Of The Week

 

A couple years back, I came up with a method to organize chess tactics.  I called it the DROP Method (http://cschess.webs.com/apps/blog/categories/show/1378181-drop-method).  The DROP method is an acronym for the basic kinds of tactics.  It is meant to remind you not to drop your pieces and help you get your opponent to drop theirs.

 

I said that the DROP Method was a work in progress, and it was.  So, I thought I would revisit each of the four kinds of chess tactics to provide more examples.  The first kind of tactic in the DROP Method is Discovery. 

 

Discovery is a chess move that attacks with two pieces. 

 

The Discovery is played when a player is going to make an attack with the piece that he moves, but also he will make an attack with another piece that was blocked by the piece that he moves.  When the Discovery is successful, the opponent can only avoid one of the attacks.  This means that the other attack will gain material or mate.  The second attack is often a check on the King, which is called a Discovered Check. 

 

"Discovered check is the dive bomber of the Chessboard."

(Reuben Fine)

 

Here is a position where I realized that my opponent had created an opportunity for a Discovery. 


Black to move.



See the diagram and answer here:

http://cschess.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=192703560

     

The Discovery is played by pushing the Pawn to c5!  The first attack is a check on the King.  The second attack is a capture of the white Rook on d4 by the black Pawn on c5.  Since the white King has to be saved, the white Rook is doomed. 


If the Rook could have been moved to a safe square that blocks check, then both attacks could have been resolved.  However, Rook to d5 does not work in this position with multiple black pieces attacking that square.

 

Other options for white fail as well.  Any counter-attack has to get out of check as well, and the only piece that can attack and defend is the white Bishop to d5.  However, black can just capture the attacker and keep the Discovery threat going (Nxd5).  So, trying to save the Rook just leads to more loss of material.

 

So, by just being observent, a player can find these Discovery opportunities and enjoy a quick win.
