  InspiredByMorphy: 26.Ba7 allows Morphy to play a move he wanted to play anyway (Rbf8), and its Morphy to play and win. I would like to have seen Morphys strategy had Lowenthal played 26.Qf3
Sep-01-04  Everett: Who knows what Morphy could have done, but after 26.Qf3 Qxf3 he's up two pawns, and white has an offside knight
Jan-10-06  morpstau: listen listen you kids morphy plays this game perfect and amazingly mordern. it looks like another cruch for morphy over his contemporaries.
Mar-06-07  tonsillolith: Morphy gets away with playing moves like 5...a6 but his opponents never do. I'm not saying it was a bad move, I'm saying he knows correctly when to develop and when to play little pawn moves.
May-02-07  Paladin88doug: Hello, you ever heard of the Najdorf? Where do you think those ideas came from? The Najdorf is a copycat of the Philidor, but with a different goal...The philidor achieves an open e-file and queenside pawn structure, like the Benoni, while the Sicilian seeks to keep both center pawns. 5. ...a6 is a staple of the Najdorf, where do you think ideas like that come from? It prevents the headache moves Nb5 and Bb5, while threatening to gain queenside actuality, it is an "aggressive" defensive move. Probably not a better choice at the ought to consider ...a6 next time you play against an e4 system.
