Amaurosis Scacchistica
Compiled by Scardini
--*--

"Amaurosis scaccistica" or chess blindness is the failure to spot a normally obvious danger, such as the fact that a piece has been left "en prise". Such blunders are frequently seen at the amateur or novice level but may also occur in games at master level.
