* It is of the same consequence in the attack of the queen's gambit to separate the adversary's pawns on that side, as it is in the king's gambit to separate them on the kings side.
f By pushing this pawn two steps, the adversary forces you to push forward your king's pawn, in order to cause your queen's pawn, now at the head, to be left behind and of no use. (See observation in page 355.) Nevertheless you must play it; but strive afterwards, with the help of your pieces, to change this your queen's pawn for his king's, and give a free passage to your own king's pawn.
