You need to solve all 10 chess puzzles in order to buy the “Maximized Focus” skill in the combat tree. There is three types of chess activity, but this video focuses on the Survival puzzles which I think are the easiest ones to do. These activity’s can be found in The Loop area of the map. Solve all 10 and you get access to the skill, which is needed for the Magic Smoke trophy / achievement.

you are incredible
I shot the dude after I completed chess. Very satisfying.
Awesome video, but for some reason my opponent doesn't do the same as yours on puzzle 4.
These games are complete bullshit
Great video man thanks a ton.
I have one where I have 2 knights and the king, he has 2 towers and queen. I can't get past that one 🙁 Thanks for your vid btw!
Dat stupid same looped dialog on the background is annoying
Thanks for this
For anyone who is having difficulties using the analog to make a selection you can use the D-Pad to highlight the pieces and it's a lot easier to navigate.
I was about to finish the sixth puzzle until someone started shooting in the coffee shop.
thanks a lot for this great video
For some odd reason, it should be impossible to win but at the last move you get off scott free!
thanks a lot harry, keep doing videos like that
Thanks, really helpful 🙂
Glad this is here, cause i can't even play chess.
Thanks. I can't play chess , so this video was brilliant. The AI copied all the moves of your AI so I think if they're not working for you, maybe your doing something wrong. Thanks again. Keep it up!!!
Thanx alot for the solutions…I never played chess
I don't know how you think these are the easiest. Then again I've never been good at chess. x_x; The puzzles where you have to take the pieces in a certain number of moves was super easy for me. I got 3 stars in all ten puzzles in like 15 minutes.
It wont let me take out his pieces
Thank you SO much. Do you think you could go back to AC3 and show us some tips for those minigames? Thanks again. You just earned a like, and a sub 🙂
Your a legend for making this…… That focus skill was the last one I needed to unlock 🙂
Thanks man for Puzzle 10! I was able to do 1-9 with no knowledge of Chess! But 10 was a hard one!
For those with trouble with the AI moving an extra space this worked for me, instead of moving the knight to take the Rook move the king up one, then down one, up and to the right and then up and to the left and it should work out
Video ain't showing…
Thank you 🙂
That was very helpful thank you very much
