b He pushes this pawn two steps, avoiding haring a double pawn upon his king's rook's line, which by push. ing your king's rook's pawn upon his knight, he had no chance of escape, and you taking it atterward with your queen's bishop would have given him a bad game.

c He plays in this manner to cut the communication of your pawns: but you escape it by pushing immediately your queen's knight's pawn upon his knight, which retreat forces your adversary to take the

pawn by the way.

This joins your pawns again, and makes them invincible.

d This knight gives the mortal blow to this game, because he has at present all your adversary's pieces in some measure locked up, till you can prepare the check mate.

CUNNINGHAM'S GAMBIT.

a If, instead of playing this bishop at his third square, he had played it at his king's second square, you had won the game in a few moves, which is made out by the first back game.

b Without sacrificing this bishop, he could not win the game; but, losing it for three pawns, he becomes your conqueror; which three pawns (provided he doch not be too eager in pushing forwards, and that they be always well sustained by his pieces) will get the game in spite of your best defence.

c'If you had pushed this pawn two steps, you hail given to his knights a free entry to your game, which would have soon lost it. But, to make this more de. monstrable, see a second back game for this eleventh

d This move is of great importance, because it prevents you from aitacking his king's knight with your queen's bishop, which would have enabled you to separate his pawns by giving one of your rooks for one of bis knights.
