|Jul-22-05|| ||DanRoss53: 29... ♘g4+ 30. ♔f3 ♘xh2+ 31. ♔f2 ♖f1# -- I'm pretty sure the score is wrong.|
|Jul-31-05|| ||sneaky pete: <DanRoss53> I agree. The Oxford Encyclopedia also gives 1-0, but this must be a clerical error.
Old magazines were in the habit of ending the score of a game at this point with "Black announced # in 3 moves".|
In 2 other games from 1820 against Brand (note the <round 3> designation of this game) Jacques Francois Moret aka The Turk scored a win and a draw giving pawn and move odds.
|Nov-25-05|| ||Steppenwolf: Chessgames.com, could you correct the score,please? Sneaky Pete has it right, it is obviously a win for black. Mouret was a very strong french "Turk".|
|Nov-08-07|| ||uniqueid: Yes the game score is obviously wrong. Good for a Wed/Thur puzzle after 27.Ne6|
|Jan-17-09|| ||WhiteRook48: Mouret resigned in a won position!|
|Jun-16-11|| ||squaresquat: I'll wager Mourot was like one of Napoleon's
general officers. He's not going to allow himself to be mated on the back rank; after surviving the retreat from Moscow and the battle of Waterloo, he knew when to give it up.
|Sep-22-13|| ||Domdaniel: Can this really be the only surviving game score of Mouret's?|
|Dec-27-13|| ||thomastonk: Others already claimed some years before that the game was won by Black. Here is a source: Walker's „Chess Studies“ game 429, p 79. He wrote „Won by Mouret of Mr Brand“ and Black "forces m(ate)". Correction slip submitted.|
|Feb-03-15|| ||wwall: After 27...Qxe6?! (stronger was 27...Re8), instead of 28.Bxe6??, White can play 28.Bd4, threatening mate. Now Black has a perpetual check after 28...Ng3+ 29.Kg1 (29.hxg3?? Qe2+ leads to mate) 29...Ne2+ 30.Kf1 Ng3+, etc.|
In the game, instead of 28...Rxd1+, Black has a mate in two after 28...Ng3+ (29.hxg3 or 29.Kg1, then 29...Rxd1 mate, or 29.Ke1 Re2 mate).
