|Oct-18-09|| ||WhiteRook48: some sources say the game ended at 19...Ng3!|
|Oct-18-09|| ||patzer2: Now 19...Ng3! is a really neat discovered attack!|
|Oct-19-09|| ||kevin86: An immortal by Morphy-spookingly similar to Marshall's gem a few years later.|
KNIGHT MOVES!!! (BTW,a good Movie,starring Christopher Lambert,deals with chess.)
|Aug-06-10|| ||LIFE Master AJ: My analysis of this game ...
|Nov-19-10|| ||sevenseaman: White had the chance to take the N on g3. So not a fool's mate; but a mate for a fool.|
|Dec-25-11|| ||Llawdogg: Wow! What an amazing finish!|
|Oct-16-12|| ||notyetagm: N Marache vs Morphy, 1857|
Egads, what an *enormous* <LEAD IN DEVELOPMENT> Morphy has.

|Apr-28-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <"The serene nineteeth beams on you, and seems almost to spell an artful, patronizing Q.E.D."> -- William Ewart Napier, "Amenities and Background of Chess-play".|
|Apr-28-13|| ||JimNorCal: The Napier book does not seem to be available on Amazon, a pity.
Will you be providing a brief review on the Napier bio page?|
|Apr-28-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <JimNorCal> You might look for it as "Paul Morphy and the Golden Age of Chess". Horowitz and Reinfeld issued an edited version under that title, and it would probably be the only version available today. It's the one I'm actually using, but I'm trying to stick to the Napier part. Those aren't hard to pick out.|
|Apr-28-13|| ||JimNorCal: <Phony Benoni> Thanks!
Yes, Golden Age is rare but available.|
|Aug-10-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: A great attack and final position.|
|Apr-05-14|| ||Whitehat1963: What an amazing finish! Morphy's skill at finding killer combinations is unparalled.|
|Aug-26-14|| ||naresb: 19. Ng3 was excellent. Suddenly it was revealed that it wasn't Ng3 which was vulnerable but Qe4 was and that too paved way for a mate.|
|Sep-09-14|| ||Sanjeev Thakur: One of the best games|

|Dec-12-14|| ||posoo: EXTRORDANARY
DIS is da kind of move dat we fools can only DREAM OF.
Even tho it is SIMPAL. it eludes your si,poe mind. DAT IS RITE.
WHO DARES TO SAY OTHERWISE?
|Jan-04-15|| ||Joules: This game appears in a chess column in the Houston Weekly Telegraph of Jan. 5, 1859, which suggests Marache resigned after move 19. An interesting problem is also posed with the alternate move 19. Qa4. Is there a forced mate? If so, in how many moves?|
The subsequent column with the answer, if any, is missing from the Chess Archeology collection at http://www.chessarch.com/excavation....
I don't see a forced mate, but the image of the clipping is an interesting insight into how chess was covered during Morphy's playing career. Two weeks later, another Morphy game is featured.
More recently, regarding chess coverage, Shelby Lyman's syndicated weekly chess column was removed from the Houston Chronicle in 2013.
|Jan-05-15|| ||Joules: Here is a curiosity. For fun, I entered the game from the 1859 newspaper account using my iPhone Shredder app. On comparison, I discovered a move out of order. In the 1859 published account, White castles at move 6, not move 9, as in this and apparently many other published accounts, according to <LIFE Master AJ>'s excellent analysis. Black's following move is the same as in this account, thus 6. O-O Nge7 instead of 9. O-O Nge7.|
I submit this as an oddity, not necessarily a correction. However, the 1859 article attributes the source to a letter from a reader while referencing Marache as the "chess editor of 'Porter's Spirit' [a popular sporting magazine of those times]." For me, this suggests Marache's own column might be the source for the moves.
|Jan-05-15|| ||Joules: Further sniffing suggests the source of our move sequence. In the 1860 book 'Morphy's Games' compiled and edited by Johann L÷wenthal, on page 376 are the familiar and accepted sequence of moves. https://books.google.com/books?id=V...|
As I said, just a historical curiousity.
|Feb-25-15|| ||Sally Simpson: Doing some research on this game and only popped on to correct verdi's 2007 post. (better late than never).|
Marache was actually born 3 days and 3 years 'after' the Battle of Waterloo, not 3 days before it.
As usual a very good Wiki post FSR.
Pity there are no pre-1857 games by Marache.
|Dec-24-15|| ||Jack Kerouac: After 19..Ng3 correct move should have been- Libation to mouth then cordial
hand shake to Master Morphy.
A Gentle man's move to acknowledge
game well played.
|Feb-04-16|| ||The Kings Domain: Bungles galore but 19)... Ng3 was a neat winning finish.|
