NOTES. (a) S.nne experts prefer 3 P to Q 4 at once. (b) Neither (iosiral>ie,n<T, at this stage,necessary. The usual reply is 3 —— B tn K 2. (C) It. is rtiwayn m«ro ndvlsilUiG t1 GflVtVjp a piece than to waste time with wing moves of this kind. (d) This turned out very bad, as it impeded dcvcloptr.e t, and should not hare been played unles" Black intended to Castle on Qusnn's side. (e) 12 P x N was the correct reply. Tuetext Should re.-sult in loss of material. (f) A lost opportunity. The proper move here Was 14-p x N, and if then 15 B x N P, the game Would continue 15 R to 1? 2, 16 B to Q 5, P to Q B 3; 17 B x B P, and Black has the advantage Of B for 2 pawns. (g) Very well played and should win easily. (A) The strongest, move was 28 R x B ch. (i) If there is such a tiling as "luck in chess, here is an instance in demonstration, for by his last move, and after much hard and patient light- ing, and with a win in immediate prospect, White Commits suicide. 29 Q Rlto Q3, followed by re- treating the B, wins easily for White. It was an Unlorcunale blunder,and for which we have not the least. doubt Black felt deeply grateful. We can, however, sympathise with White. To Correspondents, A. TowNiKND, Newport.—Many thanks for prob- lems, which are very welcome. A. C. HURLEY, Cardiff.—Both your attempts at No. 7 are wrong. J. R. LEWIS, Ferndale.-We quite agree with you as to the desirability of starting a Soluiion Tourney, and are much obliged for the kind offer to contribute towards a |jrize. We will see what can be done. Thauks for the game forwarded. CORRRSPOXDESCE CHESS—If anyone is desirous of playing a game by correspondence, Mr. J. R. Lewie, of Ferndale, will be happy to oblige.
