I. As we've discussed in our previous lessons, the principles of chess is a good guide and will very likely lead you to making many good moves.

For this week's homework, go over the game below played by the first World Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz, and I would like you to analyze his game with the principles in mind.

Please provide me with your analysis and point out the principles he followed throughout the game. I also deliberately left out the last few moves. Please analyze the position and find how White can win the game. (Points will be given to the most accurate analysis)
