Ful craftier to pley she was Than Athalus, that made the game First of the ches: so was his name. But God wolde I had ones or twyes Ykoud and knowe the jeupardyes That coude the Grek Pithagores! I shulde have pleyd the bet at ches, And kept my fers the bet therby; And though wherto? for trewely I hold that wish nat worth a stree!" (p. 391)
