OBSERVATIONS

ON THE

CONCLUSIONS OF GAMES, Shewing what may Win or give Checkmate, and what not. THESE MAY WIN,

&c. 1. A single Pawn, if his King be before him. 2. Two Pawns against one in general, es

pecially if an exchange, one for one,

can be prevented. 3. A Pawn and any Piece whatsoever, ex

cept a Pawn on a Rook's file, with a Bishop going on a different colour to the corner house of that file: see Rule

H. 5. 4. Two Bishops. 5. A Bishop and a Knight. 6. A Rook and a Bishop against a Rook. 7. A Queen against a Bishop and a Knight.

THESE CANNOT WIN, &c. 1. A single Pawn, if the adverse King be

before it, and continue on the same file ;

see Rule H. 8. 2. Two Knights.

THESE CAUSE A DRAWN GAME.

1. A Rook against a Knight. 2. A Rook against a Bishop; see Rule

H. 6. 3. A Rook and a Knight against 'a Rook. 4. A Rook and a Bishop against a Queen. 5. A Rook and a Knight against a Queen. 6. A Rook against a Bishop and 2 Pawns. 7. A Rook against a Knight and 2 Pawns;

because in this and the preceding case the Rook cannot be prevented being

sacrificed for the two Pawns. 8. A Queen against'a Rook and 2 Pawns.
