Aug-31-04  Whitehat1963: Fascinating game!
Sep-10-05  raydot: The ideas behind this game are covered in some detail by Pete Tamburro on http://www.chess.fm, "Openings for Amateurs Part 3"
May-31-06  samikd: Harrwitz vs Morphy, 1858

is where the 'Morphy move' (49th) was first seen. Very pretty

Aug-13-06  fevered cheek: black started going downhill after 26...Rc7? instead he might have played 26...e4! 27.Nf5 Nxf5 28.gxf5 and white would only be slightly better
Nov-17-06  syracrophy: 53.♖h8! <53...Rxd7 54.Rh7+ Ke6 55.Rxd7 Kxd7 56.h6 and the pawn can't be stopped>
Feb-02-07  psmith: <fevered cheek>: After 26...e4! 27.Nf5 Nxf5 28.gxf5 Qe5 29. fxg6 Nxg6 30. Qg2 Qf5 31. Rg4 Re8 32. Qg3 (analysis helped by Fritz 5.32) White does seem to retain an advantage.

  plang: 7 Bb5, 7 Bg5 and 7 Re1 all look like reasonable alternatives to closing the center with 7 d5. Tamburro says that 19..Be3 is played to avoid a thematic knight sacrifice on f5 though he states that things turn out even worse for black after this. 20 Be3 seems more logical. Eliskases ends up playing Nf5 anyway; with the other knight. 43 Qf5 is a cool move; if 43..Qa4 then 44 Rf3 and, of course, the rook ending is hopeless after 43..Qf5.
May-22-08  ToTheDeath: Excellent technique by Eliskases.

  whiteshark: The coldblooded counterattack with <25...Qc7!> would have kept the position in a balance. One possible continuation:

<26.Nf5 Bxd5 27.exd5 Nxf5 28.gxf5 Qxc3 29.Qg2 Qc2 30.Qf3 Rc4!>

and <31.Bxf8 Kxf8 32.fxg6 hxg6 33.Rxg6 f5! 34.Rxd6 Rxb4>

unclear

Feb-27-11  sfm: 45.Qf7!! is a chessgasm.
Dec-21-11  master of defence: I prefer 46...Kxf7 instead of 46... Ra7, because after 47. a5 Ke7 48. axb6 black stays a little better if comparative with the game.
