After the release of his ChessBase DVD, Grandmaster Maurice Ashley has recently released his latest project called MATCH for Maurice Ashley Teaches Chess. This application will run on the iPhone and can be downloaded for $4.99. The app is named after the famous CD “Maurice Ashley Teaches Chess” but has been upgraded with new training techniques.
The application has 20 lessons catered to beginning players, but also has some useful exercises for stronger players to sharpen visualization skills, one of which is his patented “pawn mower” exercise. There are 160 puzzles from easy to difficult and a chess engine for playing at three levels.
