|Oct-27-04|| ||Apocalypse79: 13. Rxe5!! Two bishops are in very good positions. Mate since is forced.. |
|Oct-27-04|| ||clocked: Mate is not forced, 15...c5! |
|Oct-27-04|| ||Apocalypse79: <clocked> yes.. but it only prolongs mate.. anyway, mate is inevitable in this case. |
|Oct-27-04|| ||clocked: <Apocalypse79> no, it does not "prolong" mate, there is no mate |
|Oct-27-04|| ||Apocalypse79: Oh.. man! You overlooked one fact. That fact is that you are NOT morphy. In case of morphy, it may be possble to make mate. Also, who knows future ?? We all know that mate is made by a help of opponent's mistake.. |
|Oct-27-04|| ||Shams: of course but then we don`t use the word "forced". It`s a strong word in English my friend. |
|Dec-24-05|| ||blingice: I don't know how Morphy could see a continuation based from a rook sacrifice.|
|Dec-12-06|| ||2021: <blingice> He probably was taught that rook sacrifice by his nephew, Paul Morphy.|
|Aug-23-08|| ||JimmyVermeer: Philip Sergeant attributes this game to Ernest's nephew, Paul Morphy, who played blindfolded against Dr. Forde in 1858. It is game 97 in his book, "Morphy's Games of Chess". Anyone know which Morphy actually played this game? Could it be that Paul duplicated his uncle's moves exactly against the same opponent (or at least one with a similar name?) 18 years later?|
|Aug-23-08|| ||sneaky pete: Sergeant appears to be wrong, see http://blog.chess.com/batgirl/ernes....|
This game can not be found in L÷wenthal's 1860 collection of Morphy's games. It was published in 1873 (and possibly earlier) as having been played in 1840 by Ernest Morphy. Sergeant's source is a publication from 1882.

|Oct-04-10|| ||Chessosaurus: Sorry Apocalypse79, but clocked is right! 13. Rxe5+ is a blunder, but so is 15...g6. Black got greedy and thought he could keep all the extra material. After 15...c5, the a3 bishop is cut off and there's no mate, although black will be forced to return a bishop. A possible line:
16. Qe4+ Kd6
17. QxN+ Kc7
...and the attack is over.
