Beginning+ Tactics Study 14

This is position number 14 of the book I am studying.  Discoveries is the theme.

This puzzle is a little more difficult and uses a "remove the defender" tactic to setup the "discovery".

    I tend to agree with you.  These are from a book written by a US National Master.  He first produced a book of "Combinations" and then made this smaller book from it.  Some are easier than others and I think the great variation in difficulty suggests he has lost touch with the weaker player's thought processes.

    These positions are too difficult for a beginer. One can only imagine that later examples must be even more difficult. These exercises are more suitable for advanced players with rating around 1600.
