  thegoodanarchist: According to GM Suetin, in his book "Modern Chess Opening Theory", "play based on tempting but positionally unjustified combinations was rebuffed by the genius of Paul Morphy, who worked out the principles of open positions"
Apr-02-07  wolfmaster: Good Tuesday Puzzle.
Sep-21-07  Morphyisgod: i think whites loss is due to his extremly weak white squares on the f1-a6 diagnol

  Calli: Game was played in New York. Correction submitted.
Jan-08-11  Dymdez: Sticky situation at the end, notice Morphy doesn't pin the queen with Bc4 going for the mate in 2 if queen takes back because of Nf6#
