The dreaded Poor Card deprives 4 Austrian corps of its move again. This could be decisive as they are poised to attack the village to take advantage of the change of garrison.

The remainder of the battle swings from one side to the other. It is still anyone’s game.

Austrian infantry continue to skirmish with village, but to no effect. They are on “Engage” orders and can not storm the village without “Attack” orders.

The Bavarian attack on the woods is stalling with both leading brigades Shaken. The two supporting brigades have been left well behind, at least two moves to bring them into the firing line. The artillery is moving forward to break the enemy square.
