|Jul-24-03|| ||Benjamin Lau: Yup, Philidor paves over another patzer. |
|May-24-04|| ||HailM0rphy: <I've never seen the idea, that Romantic players attacked willy-nilly -SBC on Paulsen Morphy game> Haha I think SBC should take another look at this and other Philidor/Anderssen games :D |
|Sep-05-04|| ||Knight13: That's a forcemate. |

|Jan-30-06|| ||Mate Hunter: After 15.Bg6+ black could protect the mate 16.Qf7# with 15...Qf6 (16.Rxf6+ and then 17.Qf7#). It's better to be mated at the 17th move than the 16th move.|
|Mar-17-06|| ||DeepBlade: Chess made easy. A piece() sac, to create a advanced-Queen weakness, and exploitong the weakness by 13.Bxf4 a nice tempo move. Notice the KGA Rook on f1, his line of attack aims at the Black King. Check, pin, discovered check, mate.|
|Mar-17-06|| ||RookFile: I think 7. c3 was a very good move by Philidor, especially for 1790.
It deadens the g7 bishop and prepares the way for the Bc4/Qb3 battery. Years later, as great a King's Gambit expert as Spassky erred with Nc3 in a similar position against Fischer, instead of the correct c3.|
Spassky vs Fischer, 1960
|May-21-07|| ||Whitehat1963: Quite a combination (or puzzle) after 10...hxg5. (Player of the Day)|
|May-21-07|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: From move 10-14 white takes 5 pawns in 5 moves. I've never seen such streak yet.|
So giving up the knight could hardly be called a sac.
