Dec-18-02  bishop: 21...f5? and 22...Rxf5? missed the winning 23.Nb6+
Nov-16-03  drukenknight: is 20...g4 better?
May-14-04  matrix: To paraphrase Nimzo, Don't put the question to the Bishop without a closed center.
May-06-05  soberknight: A Born Man...
Jun-07-05  prinsallan: 2 masters in action, with that I mean Morphy playing and Lowenthal annotating. I just love his annotations. Witty, solid and
very good explaning.
Jun-07-05  Pawn Ambush: Morphy was a Pin Master!! Hey that would make a nice handle!
Aug-07-09  tentsewang: I can just say WOW to Morphy's brilliancy. He pins the queen and advances to a point with playing blind folded move that he take the opponent's queen and sacrifices own queen for its new reincarnation with the pinning bishop. It is completely forced like if he did magic on his adversary each time. Wonderful!!
Aug-29-09  WhiteRook48: and how his opponent got the queen back at the end and lost anyway
Nov-11-18  Mini Morphy: When he is able to Play 8 Players in this Genius way blindfold, it almost feels absurdly even try to Play 1 game with open eyes like him.
