36. K, to B's 2nd.

36. Kt. takes P. Finely played; whether the Knight be captured or not, White must remain in a greatly inferior position.

With an excellent game.

8. B. to K's 2nd. 9. Kt. to Kt's 5th.

9. Kt. to B's 3rd. 10. Kt. takes P. Hazardous play, against such a masterly opponent.

10. R. takes Kt. 11. B. takes P. (ch.)

11. R. to B's 2nd. 12. B. to Kt's 5th.

12. B. to Kt's 5th. Rapidly bringing all his pieces into action.

13. Q. to B's 2nd. If P. to B's 3rd Black would have replied with B. to R’s 4th, &c.

13. K. to B's sq. 14. B. takes R.

14. K. takes B. 15. P. to K. R's 3rd.

15. B. to R's 4th. 16. B. takes Kt.

16. B. to Kt's 3rd. When White played P. to R's 3rd, he evidently overlooked the effect of this move, which at once frustrates all his designs. 17. Q. to K's 2nd.

17. B. takes B. 18. Q. to K's 6th (ch.) 18. K. to Kt's 2nd. 19. Q. to Q's 7th (ch.)

21. P. takes P. 22. Kt. to B's 3rd.

22. Kt. to K's 4th. Very finely played, as an examination of the position will prove :

29. Q. R. to K's sq.

29. B. takes R. 30. R. takes B.

30. Q. to Kt's 8th (ch.) The terminating moves are played with admirable skill by Mr. M., and deserve the student's best attention. 31. K. to R's 2nd.

31. B. to K's 5th. An ingenious link in the chain of the combination; we represent the position after Black's 31st move :

(Remove Black's K. B's P.) WHITE. (“ Alter.”)

BLACK. (Mr. M.) 1. P. to K's 4th.

1. P. to K's 3rd. 2. P. to Q's 4th.

2. P. to Q's 4th. 3. B. to Q's 3rd.

3. P. to K. Kt's 3rd. 4. Kt. to K. B's 3rd.

4. P. to B's 4th. 5. P. to B's 3rd.

5. Kt. to Q. B's 3rd.

6. P. to K's 5th.

6. Q. to Kt's 3rd. 7. Castles.

7. B. to Q's 2nd. 8. B. to K's 3rd. A bad move, as it loses two Pawns.

8. P. to B's 5th. Far better than at once capturing the Kt's P., in which case White would have played Q. to B's 2nd, and Black could not have taken the Rook without endangering his Queen. 9. B. to B's 2nd.

9. Q. takes Kt's P. 10. Q. Kt. to Q's 2nd. 10. Q. takes B's P. 11. R. to Kť's sq.

11. Kt. to Kt's 5th. 12. Kt. to K's sq.

12. B. to R's 3rd. 13. B. takes B.

13. Kt. takes B. 14. R. to B's sq.

14. Q. takes P. 15. K. Kt. to B's 3rd.

15. Q. to B's 4th. 16. B. to K's 4th.

16. Castles (K. R.) It is very clear that it would have been bad play to take the Bishop, on account of Kt. takes K's P. and Kt. to Q’s 6th (ch.), &c. 17. Kt. takes P.

This sacrifice was unsound and ought to have cost White the game we exhibit the position on a diagram :
