|May-13-05|| ||soberknight: Black made a number of mistakes here. I wonder if he should have taken out an attacking piece with 19...Nxb3 and simply played a pawn down from there. Soltis once wrote, "One of the reasons chess players lose short games is in order to avoid losing long ones."|
|Oct-19-05|| ||Averageguy: You can't really blame black, has it's hard to see the later combination. I think blacks main mistake was that his pieces didn't get into the game enough, like the Rb8 and the Ne8. Bronstein was only 16 when he played this game.|
|Nov-24-09|| ||Bent75: Is it OKAY to collect also my own game
in MY Game Collections;When(if)I can
find them ??
|Dec-21-09|| ||LeBronstein: The talent of Morgulis was cut short two years after this game. He died of heart disease at a very young age in 1942.|
|Jul-15-11|| ||rustyj: Why after 18. Bxh6 does Black play ...Ne8?
Why doesn't Morgulis respond with ...gxh6? It seems dangerous for black at first but it seems to make for better chances further into the game.
|Jul-15-11|| ||Shams: <rustyj> White's 18.Bxh6 just nips a clean pawn, after which Black is down material and, all things being equal, he opts to keep as many pieces on as he can, hence 18...Ne8. Also, after 18...gxh6 19.Qxf6 we have this which is just awful for Black:|

The h-pawn is fatally weak and white's knight will romp after Ne2-g3.
|Jul-15-11|| ||rustyj: Thanks kindly Shams. Fritz shows Black ignoring a gxh6 attack and going for 18..Bxd3|
The Queen and Knight go after White's King, but eventually the King ends up back on F8 and it just gets difficult for White to checkmate.
