Aug-24-05  Whitehat1963: Where did black begin to go wrong?
Aug-24-05  Robin001: <Whitehat1963> Sitting down across the board from Morphy!
Aug-24-05  Robin001: I think a better move for black is 6. ...exd4. Also, later on it was probably too late anyhow, but better for black was 9. ...exf6.
Aug-25-05  RookFile: 8. Bg5 was really incisive by Morphy.
Tempting is 8. Bxf7+ Kxf7 9. Ng5+ Ke8
10. Qxg4, but .... Nxe5 is surprisingly resilient for black.

  dakgootje: Blacks first mistake was Nf6, where exd4 was much better.

After that black second mistake was Nxf6 where gxf6 was necessary.

At blacks 10th move d5 was correct, instead of the played h6, and after hxg5 where gxf6 was needed, the game is over

Jan-20-09  chessik: I think 14.g8=Q+ ; Rxg8 15.Bxg8, and then??
May-04-09  hidude: No <chessik>, after 13...Qxe2 14. Kxe2 the rook has to move off the 8th rank or get captured, either way the pawn queens easily.
May-04-09  hidude: Also, perfect 24 points :)
Oct-29-09  alcebs2: Morphy is always protected and moves away from a winning position. His uncanny ability to see deep into a position is uniquely his.
