|Aug-22-07|| ||sneaky pete: Walker (1836) gives the final moves
44. Q. takes Q.P. 44. Q. to K.B. third
45. Q. to Q.R. seventh and wins.
44... Q to KB3 is an impossible move, apparently a clerical error where 44... Q to QB3 is meant. This is Bachmann's reading as well: 44... Qc6 45.Qa7 .. 1-0.
|Feb-20-08|| ||sombreronegro: I think white had a winning line that would have been better with 38 Rf8+. If 39 ... R X f8 then 40 Q x f8+ Q X f8 41 B X f8 and the pawn queens.|
|Feb-20-08|| ||beatgiant: <sombreronegro>:
Doesn't 38. Rf8+ Rxf8 39. Qxf8+ Qxf8 40. Bxf8 <Bd7> stop the pawn from queening?

Thank you for your post, for a long time I was searching for this very game on chessgames.com and didn't find it because I was looking for a 45 move game until I checked to see this game was the same with a slightly different end.
<chessgames.com> is there any way to check which variation is accurate, the database that came with Fritz gives teh Walker finish.
|Aug-19-08|| ||Calli: In Chess Studies: One Thousand Games (1850?), Walker gives or corrects to "QQB3". I wonder what Morphy's source was. |

|Feb-02-10|| ||TheChessVids: Man, theory on the Sicilian has developed so much since Morphy!|
|May-03-10|| ||ariel el luchador: Morphy dice que la jugada 2)P4AR ES MALA tal vez tenga razón en el sentido que esta jugada es más fuerte en otra etapa de la partida,la teoría evolucionó mucho pero no entiendo que una jugada que desarrolla nada sea tildada de buena.|
|Feb-02-12|| ||Knight13: And, of course, Morphy misses in his detailed analysis that 2. Nc3 followed by f4 is perfectly good.|
|Nov-25-15|| ||offramp: I envision Morphy at The New York Ledger office as being <EXACTLY> like Bartleby.|
|Jan-12-16|| ||ColdSong: McDonnell played nicely this game,stifling La Bourdonnais with a very modern constrictor style for 1834.|
