Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-31-16  optimal play: Wallace-Esling 1895 Australian Championship

Game 10, Wednesday 26th June

<The Chess Championship match was resumed at 2 p.m. yesterday at the Melbourne Chess Club, when the 10th game was proceeded with.

Mr. Wallace having the move played the Ponziani opening, the developing moves on each side being the "bookish theorie," arising from modern practice in the debut.

The game became an interesting one, and both players obtained free play for their pieces, the defending player emerging with somewhat the better game.

On his 24th move Mr. Esling made a weak move, losing at least a pawn.

This was bad, but worse remained, as by a still more patent blunder he lost a piece a few moves afterwards, and abandoned the game after Mr. Wallace's 29th move.

The tenth game ended just before 5 o'clock.>
