|Dec-19-02|| ||bishop: After 8...Nge7? the second player's game is already lost. |
|Dec-19-02|| ||Honza Cervenka: 12...Nc6 seems to be much better. If 13.Re1 then 13...Ne5 14.Rxe5+ Kf8 15.dxc7 Bxc7. I don't see forced win there although white had some promising continuations. He can also force draw here by 16.Ba3+ Kg8 17.Nxf7 Kxf7 18.Qb3+ etc. |
|Jan-25-09|| ||A.G. Argent: Over six years later: Sorry,<Honza Cervenka>, I saw this and had to say something. 12...Nc6 ain't good because 13.d5 wins the Knight and still allows White to nab the c4 Knight and exert plenty of pressure. If 12...Nc6 13.d5 Bd7 14.dxc6 Bxc6 15.Qxc4, all equalized and Morphy mayhem looms. If 15...0-0, 16.Qh4 is scary. If not and 15...Qxd6 then 16.Re1+ ain't good. Et cetera.|
|Jan-25-09|| ||Calli: <13.d5 wins the Knight and still allows White to nab the c4 Knight> |
Black just moves the c4 knight 13...Nxd6 13. dxc6 0-0 etc
|Jan-26-09|| ||A.G. Argent: <Calli> < Black just moves the c4 Knight...> Oh,uh....yeah....I...uh...I...uh..I knew that!, I saw that!, I just forgot! ( Thanks for the correction, got a bit ahead of myself. Ain't hardly the first time.)|
|Sep-12-09|| ||kooley782: By Black's 13th move he has already lost. Give Morphy a position like that and you have no chance.|
|Jun-05-10|| ||player0: he is realy great... best all the times.
would be interested to see playing against fischer or kasparov.
|Jun-27-11|| ||lemonadepawn: @player0 the chess theory was not so developed those days. He's more like Capablanca, unlike Alekhine or good strategists. Morphy has an open style, he would beat his opponents right from the first moves.|
|Jun-27-11|| ||NM JRousselle: Ya gotta love how efficiently Morphy gets his pieces out.|
|Jan-28-13|| ||thomastonk: The game lastet even until move 40, see "New York Albion", June 22, 1867.|
