Chess Tactics Teaser - Discovered Check TacticDiscovered Check is an attack that happens in the same way as an ordinary, Discovered Attack ...

The only difference is that the attack, by the uncovered piece, is against your opponent's King, rather than any of the other pieces.

If you're not aware of how a Discovered Attack works, basically, it's like this ...
  • Two pieces are involved in a Discovered Attack. The first piece is currently in-between direct line of site between your rearward piece and a key enemy piece ...

  • The first piece moves out the way - usually to attack something else, sometimes just for positional advantage ...

  • However, in the process of moving, the stationary piece behind is uncovered - or Discovered - and now has a clear path toward the enemy piece.
