  InspiredByMorphy: Morphy actually wins a piece in the game, which would have been enough to secure a draw or (likely in Morphy's case) find a win in just a Queen Knight odds game.
Oct-12-05  amuralid: Wow! I never knew Morphy lost games :)
Dec-01-05  Chopin: The thing I love about Morphy's games is that even though he'll play with odds, he'll still sacrifice pieces.
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: I thought Morphy had that game working pretty well.
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: if it took you that long to find Morphy lost games... then you should look at the Morphy page. His winning percentage is high, but not 100%. or did you mean the ones Morphy wasn't winning were all draws?? :)
Oct-21-11  Mozart72: Morphy has material disadvantage value: 11.1 against Maurian: 16.5, and the former lost.
Jan-29-16  juanhernandez: make a smile which never hurts,

Morphy loses! A rarity! But he gave odds anyway so it won't...
