|Apr-22-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: What a game by Morphy! This is one of the strongest Ruy lopez as black games Ive seen from Morphy, and he did it with cozio defence 3.Nge7 ! |
|Dec-09-04|| ||Dropped Down Cloud: Dangerous passed pawns!
Well played, Morphy.
|Nov-21-05|| ||THE pawn: 31.Qxd8+ is one hell of a blunder. What the hell was he trying to do? After 33.Qxc3, morphy has three passed pawns! horrible.|
|Aug-02-07|| ||Judah: Why can't White take the Rook on move 19?|
|Oct-31-07|| ||dovif: it would cost a Q, ie
BxR, RxB ... B D5 mate at g7
|Feb-17-08|| ||JimmyVermeer: I thought Morphy missed an easy mate in 3 on his 38th move, but then I came here and saw a White Rook at e1. Sergeant lists White's 37th move as QR-K1, and I took it to mean the rook on the queen's file.|
A possible continuation at the end is 40 Bg2 Qxc1 41 Rxc1 b2 42 Rf1 Bxg2 43 Kxg2 c1Q, but I`m not sure what White would do after that.
On Medley's 31st move, he should have tried Rac1. The move he actually played seems to be the 2nd best, though, even though it was decidedly a crucial blunder.
|Apr-30-08|| ||melv: Why doesnt white take pawn g7 on move 14?|
|Jun-22-08|| ||heuristic: <Why doesnt white take pawn g7 on move 14?>
must have been afraid of protecting the K against Morphy with an open g file,
2 Bs and Q+R! otherwise, it's the right thing to do.
14.Qxg7 Kd7 15.Rd1 Kc7 16.Nd2 Qg8
14...Qf6 15.Qxf6 Nxf6 16.Re1 Rg8
14...Rf8 15.Re1 Qc7 16.Qg5 Be7
14...Qh4 15.Qxh8+ Kd7 16.g3 Rxh8 17.gxh4
14...Bxh2+ 15.Kxh2 Qc7+ 16.Kg1 0-0-0
<it would cost a Q, ie 19.BxR, RxB ... B D5 mate at g7>
19.Bxa8 Rxa8 20.Nd2 f5 21.Qg2 Qh5 22.Re1 seems to hold the game.
Medley wasn't very aggressive this game!
