Play in the fifth round of the chess championship was resumed at the School of Arts last night, the unfinished games being Jacobsen v. Wallis, <Mackenzie v. Pietzcker>, and Lancaster v. Foster. The closeness of the leading scores keeps interest well sustained in the matches, and again there was a large gathering of enthusiastic chessists to witness the play.>

Mackenzie v. Pietzcker: A "centre counter" game, which, as was anticipated, resulted in a draw on the 37th move. The moves were carefully considered on both sides, neither player having an appreciable advantage at any time.>

<(a) 14. B takes B <14.Bxf3>

Why not Q takes B <Qxf3>? It might yield White some attack.>

<(b) 23… Q takes R <23...Qxe5>

The game calls for little comment. An equal position has been carefully maintained on both sides, and at this stage the draw might be agreed to.>
