a Withdrawing your king to his bishop's place, ren ders it impossible for your adversary to preserve the gambit's pawn, which will be always in your power to take,

a If, instead of two, you had pushed this pawn but one step, your adversary would have shut up your queen's bishop for half the game at least; the first back game will be the evidence of it.

b He would have lost the game, if, instead of playing this pawn, he had sustained the gambit's pawn. This will be perceived by a second back game. But if he had neither pushed this pawn, nor taken the gambit's pawn, you must have pushed your king's bishop's pawn iwo steps, and then your game would have been in the best of situations.

c If you had taken his king's pawn, instead of pushing your pawo forward, you had lost the benefit of the attack. This is the subject of a third back game.

d If he had played any thing else, you must have pushed your king's bishop's pawn two steps, and thus have procured your pieces an entire liberty.

e If, instead of playing your knight to take his king's bishop, or make him remove it froin that line, you had taken the gambit's pawn, you had lost the game again. This is made clear by a fourth back game.

f If, in lieu of taking your knight, he had played his bishop at your queen's fourth square, you must have attacked it with your king's knight, and taken it the next

g If he had pushed his queen's knight's pawn iwo steps in order to sustain his gambit's pawn, instead of castling, it appears by a fifth back game that he had 3 lost; and if, instead of either of these two moves, he had taken your king's pawn, your retaking it would have hindered him from taking yours again with his 3 knight, because he would have lost the game by your giving him check with your queen.

h This particular move demands a sixth back game:because if you had retaken his king's bishop's pawn 33 with your king's bishop's pawn, you again had lost the game.

i In retaking this pawn, you give an opening to your rook upon his king, and this pawn serves likewise fos a better guard to your king; it stops also your adver sary's knight's course; and although you have at pre sent a pawn less, you have the best of the game by the situation.
