Jun-15-05  Knight13: I like how White slowly builds up the mating net while Black is sitting there noticing nothing about it!

Intersting final position.

  wwall: Black should have played 12...dxe5.

Not 13...Qg5?? or 13...Nxg3??, because of 14.Rf7+ Kg8 15.Rd7+ d5 16.Bxd5 mate.

Perhaps best is 14...Nb4 15.Bxe7 Nxd3 16.Bf6+ Nxf6 17.exf6+ Kg6.

Oct-12-05  ThaDoctor: it is worth noticing that, this is a game against NN. But anyway it is a beautiful mate in the ending, except for just that it will never accor in a "real" game, due to the fact that there is big time limits and i do not think that anybody is missing all this... ? 7.-d5 seems more active. After 12.-Nh5 the mating comnibation is absolutly forced! There are only few thing to make better, but it will make a lot differense in long end!

but a pretty mate... :-)

Sep-03-06  altair7: Apparently Maurian learned a lot from Morphy :)
May-21-08  Whitehat1963: Nice Tuesday/Wednesday puzzle after 13...Qe7.
Dec-21-08  WhiteRook48: Maurian did learn a lot from Morphy
Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: what a pawn mate!
May-21-11  YoungEd: 13. ♗g3 is the star move. Black can't take the ♗ because of ♖f7+ followed by ♕f6++. Clearing the f-file is enough to win for White.
