Seite 3 - I replace. 3. When a player has quitted a piece, he cannot recall the move. 4. If a player touch one of his adversary's pieces without saying J'adoube, he may be compelled to take it, or, if it cannot be taken, to move his king.
Seite xiv - ... Salvio was considered the most ingenious master of his time, and his openings of games are said to evince the fertility of his genius and his promptness at resource. " Unfortunately," says Sarratt, "most of his openings are of little use in countries where the king is limited in his castling. Salvio, when he had the move, commonly castled in a manner which is not allowed in this kingdom, that is to say, he moved his king to his rook's square, and his rook to his king's square.
Seite xv - Que par ton démarche fière | Tous mes projets sont à bas : Je vois, dès que tu t'avances, Céder tous mes défenses, Tomber tous mes champions ; Dans ma résistance vaine, Roi, Chevalier, Roc et Keine Sont moindre que tes pions.
Seite 8 - As the game is drawing to a conclusion, if one of the players remain with a Rook and Bishop against a Rook, with both Bishops, or with a Knight and Bishop against a King, he must checkmate his adversary in fifty moves on each side at most ; for if at the expiration of fifty moves, checkmate be not effected, the game must be considered as drawn.
Seite 3 - J'adoube, he may be compelled to take it, or, if it cannot be taken, to move his king. 5. When a pawn is moved two steps, it may be taken by any adversary's pawn, which it passes, and the capturing pawn must be placed in that square over which the other leaps. 6. The king cannot castle if he has before moved, if he is in check, if in castling...
Seite 8 - Many examples may be given where a skilful player will push a Pawn to Queen before any exchange has taken place ; in that case, what will the Pawn be called, and of what use will it...
Seite xvi - He published at Paris in 1737 a small work containing a hundred situations or ends of games: many of these are very instructive, and ought to be known by every chess student: others, says Sarratt, there is every reason to believe, never occurred in the course of a game, and it may be doubted whether they could occur. We may add that the same remark also applies to many of the chess problems of our own day. In an edition of this work in French, published by...
Seite xx - Practical and Theoretical observations on the Game of Chess," was published at Modena. " The author," says Sarratt, " chose to conceal his name, and it is difficult to assign a satisfactory reason for his diffidence, for it is unquestionably a publication of great merit and real utility." For many years the author of this book was referred to as " The Anonymous Modenese,
Seite 6 - Bishop's square; and, 4, The King at the Rook's square, and the Rook at the King's square. These different methods of castling render the game remarkably interesting. If the third method of castling were allowed in playing Cunningham's Gambit, the attack would perhaps be irresistible.
Seite 5 - ... one of the rooks at the same time. When the removal of the bishop and the knight on the one side, or of the bishop, knight, and queen on the other, has cleared the intervening squares, the king may castle with either of his rooks If it should be done on the king's side of the board, the king is to be placed on the knight's square, and the rook on the bishop's ; if in the queen's section, the king must be moved to the bishop's square, and the rook to the queen's. In other words, the king, in either...
