[video] Chess Study #6: Hermanis Mattison, 1913

In this video we are going to take a look at an instructive study by Hermanis Mattison. It was composed in 1913. It is similar to Chess Study #5 in the sense that again we see a fight of pawn and bishop against rook, but the theme is slightly different.
