Dec-01-05  Chopin: Morphy was a tactical genius.
Jan-13-06  Pawn Ambush: At this young age you see Morphy playing the opening superbly I can't understand how his father and uncle failed to play the black side of the Evans better!
Jan-13-06  Saruman: 26.Re2 Ne3+ 27.Rxe3 Qf2# very nice.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Today's Game of the Day (Chigorin-Steinitz) inspired me to look at the 6...Nf6 variation, and I see that Morphy played it before Anderssen, but Anderssen played it more often, and I cannot help but wonder--should this variation be named in honor of *both* grest rivals?!
Jan-29-16  juanhernandez: But nothing is greater than Friendship.
Oct-28-16  romancitog: No one could touch Morphy
