(c) The only move.

2. Kt. to K. B. third

13. Q. R. to Q. square
14. Q. to K. Kt. fourth
15. P. takes K. P. (c)

17. R. to Q. fourth
18. K. to K. second.
19. Q. takes Q.

20. P. to K. B. sixth

And wins.

Notes.

(a) "P. to Q. B. third" is stronger.

(b) This is a useless move. “Q. to K. sixth," in order to support his right wing, would have been more to the purpose.

(c) A very ingenious combination. If White now takes B. with Q. (check). Black plays "R. to Q. third," and nothing can prevent the checkmate. "P. to Q. fourth," instead of the move in the text, would not have been so strong, as White, in this case, could have checked with Q. on K. B. sixth.

(d) A desperate effort to free his pieces; but could "Q. to K. B. third," instead, have saved the game? Black's probable answer would have been “R. to Q. third,” when the following variation might have arisen :—

White.

16. Q. to K. B. third 17. P. takes P. (best) 18. Kt. to K. R. third

19. P. to Q. B. third (best) 20. K. to R. second (best) 21. R. takes B. (best)

22. Q. to Q. R. eighth (check) (e) No other move.

16. Q. R. to Q. third
17. B. takes P.

And White resigned. (g)

Notes.

(a) It does not seem advisable to capture Q. Kt. P. at this point. (6) It strikes us that Black has a very cramped game in this position. (c) "P. to Q. Kt. third." might have been stronger.

(d) Variation

White.

26. Q. R. to Q. square 27. R. takes Q.

28. K. to Kt. second

(e) A masterly move.

f) Threatening to check on K. Kt. eighth.

Black.

26. Q. takes R.

27. R. takes R.(check)

28. R. to Q. sixth, and wins

There was no resource left in this position, for White's only plausible move—viz., “K. to B. sixth”—would have been replied to with “Q. to K. Kt. square."
