  nasmichael: Barnes had the winningest record against Morphy in friendly games, and still Paul could work one of these aggressive games in against him.

  hudapri: A complex game with an unclear sacrifice. 18... Nd8 is a mistake (18... Rg7 better), perhaps Black missed that his queen is pinned on 21. Qh5+.
