Dec-20-02  mdorothy: Does 19. Bf7 have any real advantages, or is it just an attempt to let Morphy screw up? Maurian wins in a couple other odds games against Morphy too, shouldn't he try something along the lines of freeing his other rook instead of wasting two moves? I don't think it is possible to hold the pawn.

  MorphyMatt: 4... Qh4 is very un-Morphy
Dec-28-06  MarkN: i guess Bf7 threatens Be8 on the next move... obviously not too hard to handle
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: very un-Morphy-ish. What's Morphy doing? Bringing the Queen out early??
Mar-21-09  WhiteRook48: stop giving so much odds already!
