* Black here takes the white king's bishop, as it is playing upon his king's rook's pawn (16), the capture of which would much embarrass his king, who could not retake, as by so doing he would be in check to the white queen's knight, situate on his king's knight's fifth square (31). It also leaves the black queen at liberty by moving to her king's bishop's fourth square (30), to support her king's rook against the attack of the white queen's rook; at the same time, by the removal of the rook (44) forming a discovered check on the white king.

+ White here wishes to exchange queens, having the advantage of a rook against a bishop, and finding her troublesome. Black is compelled to the exchange, to avoid check-mate, otherwise given thus: B. Queen retires to her king's third square (21). W. Queen takes the king's rook's pawn (from 37 to 16), giving

Check-mate. The black king cannot take the queen, or move to his bishop's second square (14), as he would in either case be in check to the white queen's knight; neither can he move to his rook's square, as he would there be io check to the white queen.

* White must now win the game; Black can only hinder him from doubling his rooks by the sacrifice of his bishop, or allowing White to push his pawo to queen; so that any way he loses the game.

+ Black plays his bishop thus, to command his king's rook's square, and prevent Check.mate by the while queen's rook playing th lo.

This re-joins White's pawns and renders them invincible.

+ This move of the white knight determines the game, having now all Black's pieces iu some measure blocked up, uptil he can prepare Check-mate.
