Wallace took prompt advantage of Pietzcker's weak Ruy Lopez opening, and won in his best style.>

<(a) 6. P to Q R 3 <6.a3>

P to B 3 <c3> is the right move.>

<(b) 7. B to Kt 5 <7.Bg5>

Breaking the principle, that is worse than useless to pin the K Kt when a player has castled and his opponent has not.>

<(c) 12. Q to B sq <12.Qc1>

It is seldom that the Ruy Lopez comes so early to grief.>

<(d) 18? Kt takes P <18...Nxg4>

Black has the ball at his foot, and is kicking merrily. His play throughout could not be improved.>
