Feb-23-04  ruylopez900: Wow, nice play by White to get those passed pawns!
Dec-12-04  Zembla: Black helped Morphy get that passed pawn by giving away his g pawn on move 47. I don't se why he did that.
Dec-13-04  raydot: I like the quote by Philip Sergeant in Macon Shibut's book <Paul Morphy and the Evolution of Chess Theory.> Sergeant writes, in a book of his own, "...in nothing was Morphy so fortunate as the frequency with which his opponents played P-R3." Yet here he is playing it on move 9. Crazy waste of tempo? Like a fox! Compare with Black's advantage after 9. ♕f3 10. e5?! in Tal vs Book, 1961.
Dec-14-04  Zembla: <raydot> I'm not sure I fully see your point, but it is an interesting comparison. BTW, great Tal game! I like the way he was determined to have his knight fork at the end. Shibut's book is pretty good, isn't it?
Aug-04-07  sanyas: 19...f5 was good for Black. Meanwhile 44...c4 45.bxc4 ♗xc4 46.♕f8+ ♔b7 47.♖b2+ ♗b5 48.♕b4 ♔a8 49.a4 ♕f3 50.♖b3 ♕e2+ 51.♔g3 ♕e5+ 52.♘f4 c5 53.♕c3 ♕xc3+ 54.♖xc3 ♗xa4 55.♘xg6 ♖b3 is a very forced draw. I don't understand why Black surrendered the g-pawn either.
