  InspiredByMorphy: Maybe 34.Nd4 would have served Morphy better. 35.Nxd4 Qxd4+ If 36.Kg3 Qe5+ 37.Kf2 Qxh2 or if Kf1/Ke2 then Bc4+ wins the queen, or if Ke1 Qg1+ wins.
Feb-09-09  Pawn Ambush: Two great masters play the same line.

Mar-24-14  RookFile: This game is sharp. I like it. It very much looks like a modern, dynamic game.

  morfishine: <InspiredByMorphy> 34...Nd4 34.Nxd4 Qxd4 36.Kg3 <36...Qe5+???> doesn't work due to 37.Qxe5

Maybe you meant 36...Qd6+


Dec-19-14  GoldenBird: 6. Be2 was a questionable move indeed, far inferior to the active Bc4 or Bf4, as it does allow for the c5 move to be played. And thus, black will have a strangle hold over the dark squares in the centre and white will have a positional advantage of black's backward d6 pawn and weak d5 square
