Oct-19-02  Danilomagalhaes: This game was realized in a simultaneous game against 3 players without see the board, and I guess it was realized in 1783, not in 1788...

Philidor showed the importance of the pawns like basic element in a strategy. E.g.:48. Kg1, f2+, 49. Kg2, Rd1, and the white cannot obstruct the advanced pawn...

  Honza Cervenka: Danilo, are you commenting this game? I am afraid that this is another game played by Bruhl and Philidor. That game from 1783 played by Philidor blindfolded in simul against three opponents included John Bruhl is not still in the database. You can find it as kibitzing post on François André Philidor
Oct-19-02  Danilomagalhaes: Yes, you´re right. I guess I got confused...
Oct-19-02  Danilomagalhaes: I saw this game and I started to comment, without see the game (I know the other game against Bruhl)
Premium Chessgames Member <That game from 1783 ... is not still in the database.> We've been holding off uploading games that users sumbit, as we've been working on a feature so that anybody can upload games directly to the database. Once that is in place, we should receive many important historical games.
Nov-04-02  Danilomagalhaes: Nice! So, can I send my games for you put here? Maybe a special page for me, too... ;-)
Nov-04-02  Danilomagalhaes: Oh, don´t take it too serious, I´m just kidding. I don´t have any photo to send and put here...:-)

  InspiredByMorphy: Note how after White sacrifices the knight, black takes advantage of the uncasteled king with 12.d5 bringing about the trading off of a minor piece, and queens which does nothing but help black being a piece up. Great play by Philidor!

  Benzol: Somebody better get a bucket for the person whose about to "vomit with rage".
Sep-05-04  Minor Piece Activity: I'm sure that once knight13's seen several hundred games like the rest of us, he'll stop saying "beautiful" or "nice game" on everything. =D
Sep-06-04  Knight13: <Minor Piece Activity> Sorry, I can't quit saying it even after 1000 games.
Sep-06-04  Giancarlo: <Benzol> <Somebody better get a bucket for the person whose about to "vomit with rage". >

That would be me.

  InspiredByMorphy: 15.Bxe4 would have given white some potential.
Jul-07-05  Phoenix JS: I think you are right Morphy.
Sep-21-06  Philid0r: Anybody? Could anyone tell me what's wrong with 43 e3xf2? that's what my HIARCS engine would do to... is that just a huge blunder?
Sep-21-06  positionalgenius: <philidor>If he takes the bishop the black king invades and takes the c4 pawn.
May-21-07  prinsallan: 43. Kxf2 Kd4 swallows the whole pawn-chain. Actually, the textmoves does almost the same anyway so I guess Kxf2 is kind of better, but still losing easily.
Oct-15-08  just a kid: Bruehl was just outplayed.

  wordfunph: Bruehl simply bullied by early as 17th move Bruehl should have resigned.
May-31-16  juanhernandez: easy game !!!
