BOARD No. 6.-Bishop's OPENING.

Mr. Morphy and Mr. Cunningham.

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

5. P. takes P. 6. P. to K's 5th.

6. Q. to K's 2nd. A bad move; Black should have played P. to Q's 4th. 7. Castles.

7. Kt. to K. Kt's sq. 8. P. takes P.

8. B. to Kt's 3rd. 9. P. to Q's 5th.

9. Q. to Q. B's 4th. 10. Kt. to R's 3rd.

10. Kt, to Q's 5th. 11. B. to K's 3rd.

11. Kt. takes Kt. (ch.) 12. Q. takes Kt.

12. Q. to K. B's sq. There was no other move; for if the Queen had been played elsewhere, P. to Q's 6th would have rendered Black's game hopeless. 13. B. takes B.

13. R's P. takes B. 14. Kt. to Kt's 5th.

14. K. to Q's sq. 15. Q. R. to Q. B's sq. From this point to the end of the game Mr. Morphy plays in a very dashing, brilliant style ; and here commences a blindfold combination of surprising depth and soundness.

15. P. to Q's 3rd. 16. P. takes P.

16. P. takes P. 17. Q. to K's 3rd.

17. R. to R's 3rd.

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

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

4. Q. to B's 3rd. It is rarely, if ever, advisable to play the Queen to this square early in the game. Her position is not a good one either for attack or defence, and she is often subjected to a most dangerous attack here. 5. Kt. to B's 3rd.

5. B. to K's 3rd.
Taking Pawn with Queen would clearly have been bad play.

6. B. to Kt's 5th (ch.) 6. Kt. to B's 3rd. 7. P. to B's 5th.

7. B. to Q's 2nd. 8. Castles.

21. K. to Q's 2nd. 22 Kt. to Q's 5th.

22. Kt. takes Kt. Compulsory; otherwise by retreating the Bishop to Kt's 2nd, White would subsequently win a Piece. 23. B's P. takes Kt.

23. Q. to B's 2nd. 24. P. takes P.

24. Kt's P. takes P. 25. Q. to R's 4th (ch.) 25. K. to K's 2nd. 26. R. to Kt's 3rd.

26. K. R. to Q. Kt's sq. 27. K. R. to Kt's sq.

5. P. to Q's 4th.

6. B. to Q's 3rd.

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

7. Castles. 8. P. to Q. B's 4th. According to Jaenisch, in his “ Analyse Nouvelle,” neither player can improve upon the moves adopted, up to this point.

8. Kt, to K. B's 3rd. In the work just mentioned, P. to Q. B's 4th is recommended at this juncture. 9. B. to Kt's 5th.

9. B. to K's 3rd. 10. Q. to Kt's 3rd.

10. P. takes P. 11. B. takes P.

If the Queen had taken the Knight's Pawn, it is clear that to save her, White must have submitted to the loss of the Bishop, e.g.11. Q. takes Kt's P.

11. B. to Q's 4th. 12. B. takes Kt.*

12. P. takes B. 13. Q. to Kt's 5th.

17. P. takes Q. 18. Kt. takes Kt.

18. P. takes Kt. 19. K. R. to K's sq.

White has now somewhat the better game, as Black's Pawns are vidently weak.

20. Q. R. to Kt's sq. 21. P. to Kt's 3rd.

21. R. to K's 2nd. 22. Kt. to R's 4th.
