* This particular move demands a sixth back-game; because if you had retaken his king's bishop's pawn with your king's bishop's pawn, you had lost the game again.
t In retaking this pawn, you give an opening to your rook upon his king, and this pawn serves likewise for a better guard to your king ; it stops also the course of your adversary's knight; and though you have at present a pawn less, you have the best of the game by the situation.
