Nice comment, if the Queen takes the Bishop, the Knight on e4 will fork the Queen with Nd6+.
But what if the King retreats to f8, can white pose a threat?
|Oct-28-05|| ||DeepBlade: And Nd6+, what kind of threat would that be, any mating-combinations?|
|Dec-05-05|| ||KingG: Black can still play on in this game, but it will be extremely uncomfortable, and he will probably lose at least a couple of pawns. There is no immediate win however.|
This game is actually worth knowing if you play the king's gambit, especially on the lower levels. Black's first 9 or 10 moves are quite natural, and aren't uncommon.
|Feb-07-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: <KingG> You say Black's first 9/10 moves are quite naturel, I have to disagree with you. The move 3. ... Be7 isn't a common move! I am sure of it!|
|Feb-07-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: The game is completely over after Nd6!|
|Feb-07-06|| ||psmith: <Bobak Zahmat> 3...Be7 is the Cunningham Gambit and is a standard defense.|
|Feb-07-06|| ||Bobak Zahmat: <psmith> Thanks. I had not seen this variation before. I will take a look good at it. But Fischer's 3. ... d6!? remains the best option I think.|
|Jul-09-06|| ||RookFile: The Cunningham variation is ok, but what you want to try are these ...Bh4+ lines. If what will play Kf1 in reply to the ....Qh4+ lines, then ...Bh4+ is even more useless for black.... all you've got is a bishop flapping in the breeze. It's no coincidence that in the final position if this game, black wished that he had a bishop to cover d6.|
|Jul-10-06|| ||Poulsen: Another boring Morphy-game against weak opposition ...|
|Jul-10-06|| ||offramp: I think it was a consultation game. The 'cg' in the header is a bit inscrutible.|
|Jul-10-06|| ||Boomie: <Poulson> The game is of historical interest as Morphy is about 12 years old here. Even at this age he knew the power of proper piece development.|
|Jul-10-06|| ||Poulsen: <Boomie> I am aware of Morphy's age, when he played this game. I am also aware that he won the game by having a better understanding of the importance of piece development.|
I don't see however, why that makes the game of "historical interest" - unless off you want to define all games won by talented youngsters as of "historical interest".
I any case the game is, IMO, less impressive than f.x. this game won by an 11-year holding his head against world class opposition Janowski vs Reshevsky, 1922.
Now that's talent!!
Morphys many victories against "named" NN's doesn't prove anything.
|Jul-16-07|| ||JMJ565X: who is this morphy guy? he seems to be an okay player??|
|Jul-16-07|| ||yavuz1990: <JMJ565X> Have you never heard Paul Morphy?? He was the best chess master of 19th century, he is the founder of open position tactics and <importance of piece development>. Please read his profile and don't make Morphy fans angry.|
|Jul-16-07|| ||Atking: <In any case the game is, IMO, less impressive than f.x. this game won by an 11-year holding his head against world class opposition Janowski vs Reshevsky, 1922> Well Morphy winning 2.5 on 3 games match at twelve with Lowenthal (At time one of the best in the world (Not a "NN")) is then even more impressive.|
|Jul-16-07|| ||JMJ565X: oooooh, yes, now i kno... paul morphy, a has been!!|
|Apr-02-08|| ||D.Observer: What's shocking with 11. Ne4?|
|Apr-02-08|| ||sneaky pete: 11.Ne4 .. threatens not only 12.Nd6+ .. but also (after 11... Bh5) 12.g3 .. winning the DSB. The game is probably incomplete, <cg> being the standard abbr of clipped game.|
|May-16-09|| ||Chess4Life99: Why would black resign in this position?
Also, when looking at Morphy's player page I saw that he liked to play a lot of gambits. Do you think that because he played so many gambit he won more games?
|Dec-19-09|| ||blazerdoodle: Some people need to go back to checkers.|
|Jul-08-11|| ||ahubers: And what about 11... Be6 ?|
|Jul-08-11|| ||Sastre: 11...Be6 12.Bxe6 fxe6 13.g3 wins a piece.|
|Oct-20-11|| ||Mozart72: Morphy and McConnell have the same material advantage value: 36.6, and Morphy won.|
|Jan-28-16|| ||juanhernandez: is vast like UNIVERSE.
Deep like OCEAN.
High like SKY.
|May-17-17|| ||brian5668: Relatively similar to the Morphy vs Knott game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gH...|
