a Had your adversary played any thing else, this was still your best move, it being highly advantageous to change your king's bishop's pawn for his royal pawn; because your king and queen's pawns place themselves in the middle of the chess-board, and are thus enabled to stop all the progress of your adversary's pieces; be. sides ihis, you gain the attack by his having played his king's knight at the second move. You have also ano. ther advantage by losing your king's bishop's pawn for his king's pawn; viz. when you do castle with your king's jook, the same rook finds itself instantly free and fit for action. This will be made clear by the first back game, the third move.
b Observe, if he refuses taking your pawn, leave it exposed in the same situation and place; unless he should choose to castle with his king's rook, in such case you must undoubtedly push that pawn forwards, in order to attack his king with all the pawns of your right wing. The effect will be hest understood by a se. cond back game, beginning from this fifth move. Take notice again, as a general rule, not easily to push on the pawns either of your right or left wings before your adversary's king has castled, otherwise he will retire where your pawns are less strong or less advanced.
f he takes your knight, you must take his with your pawn, which being joined to his increases their strength.

d This is the best square your king's bishop can choose, except the fourth of his queen's bishop, particularly when you have the attack, and it is not in your adversary's power to hinder that bishop from playing on his king's bishop's pawn.
e Had he castled on his queen's side, then it would have been your game to castle on your king's side, that you might attack him more conveniently with your pawns on the left.
Be cautious in pushing your pawns forward till they are well sustamer both by one anoiher, and also by your pieces. The form of this allack at your left will he best understood by a third back gaine, commencing from this tenth move.

in order to advance it two steps, and thus to break the chain of your pawns.
g Had he puslied his king's bishop's pawn instead of taking your bishop, in that case you must have attacked his queen
with your queen's bishop, and pushed your king's rook's pawn the next move upon his bishop, to force bin to take your knight: in which case your best game is to retake his bishop with your pawn, in order to support your royal pawn, and replace it in case it be taken.
h If he did not take your knight, his bishop would remain imprisoned liy your pawns, or he would lose at least ihree inoves to set him at liberty.

1 This move is most difficult to comprehend as well as to explain. You are to observe, when you find your. self with a chain of pawns succeeding one another upon one and the same coloured squares, the pawn who has the van must not be abandoned, but should strivo to keep his post Here again observe, that your king's pawn being not in the line of his comrades, your adversary has pushed his queen's bishop's pawn two steps, for two reasons. The first, to engage you to push that of your queen forwards, which, in this case, would be always stopped by that of his queen, and thus leaving behind that of your king, would render it totally useless. The second is, to hinder your king's bishop from battering his king's rook's pawn; it is best, therefore, to push your king's pawn upon his rook, and lose it; because ihen your adversary, by taking it, opens a free passage to your queen's pawn, which you are to ad. vance immediately, and support, in case of need, with your other pawns, with a view to make a queen with it, or draw some other valuable advantage to win the game. His queen's pawn (now become his king's) apparently has the same advantage of having no opposition from our pawns to make a queen: the difference, however,

is great, because his pawn being entirely parted from his comrades will always be in danger in his road, by a multitude of your pieces all waging war against it.
m In order to stop his king's pawn, it became peces. sary to play that knight: the more, because this very pawn, in its present situation, blocks up the passage of his own bishop, and even of his knight.
n He plays his queen to give check next: but if he had played his king's rook's pawn to frustrate the at. tack of your knight, you must then have attacked his bishop and his queen with your queen's pawn , hence he would have been forced to take your pawn, and you should have retaken his bishop with your knight, which he could not have taken with his queen, because she would have been lost by a discovered check with your bishop.
o He takes your king's bishop; in the first place, to save his king's rook's pawn, and because your bishop proves more inconvenient to him than any other of your pieces; and secondly, to put his queen upon the rook that covers your king.
