The adjourned games from Thursday in the chess championship were played off at the Sydney Chess Club last night, and resulted in Lancaster defeating Wallis.>

<(a) 5 … P to Q R 4 <5...a5>

Allowing White too much time; B Kt 5 was stronger>

I’m presuming he means 5...Bg4 which seems better than 5...Bb4+

<(b) 12 … Castles Q R <12...O-O-O>

P to K R 4 <h5> was required before the text move.>

<(c) 21. R to R 3 <21.Rh3>

A far-seeing precaution, which correctly anticipates his opponent’s line of play.>

<(d) 21 … P to Q Kt 4 <21...b5>

This move proves bad now. Mr Wallis explained afterwards that he was under the impression that White had played the bishop instead of the rook to R 3.>
