Nov-27-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 6.Nxf7! exposes king to lovely attack. Then 14.Bg5 finishes the black's unsure position.

  Chicago Chess Man: I think I would've just tried to weather the storm with 7... Kxe6.

  TrueFiendish: How about 7...dxe6 8.Qxd8 Bb4+ and wins back the queen?

  THE pawn: <TrueFiendish> Not good for black. After 8...Bb4+ 9.Qd2 Bxd2 10.Kxd2 white is up a bishop

  TrueFiendish: Look again, after 10...Nxe4+ he's up nuthin.

  THE pawn: <TrueFiendish> I mean't 10.Nxd2 where he is more than alright. I don't think it's a winning advantage for white, but morphy can easily handle this.

The correct reply is: 7...Kxe6! with no danger for black and a huge potential advantage. Off course, having the king in such an open range against Morphy is a lost game in itself, but GMs today could easily win with black.

  TrueFiendish: I was just pointing out that black had more than one option to the craven Ke8.
Feb-04-08  mravikiran: Paul Morphy!
Apr-01-08  ValenFrog: Black should have done 10...Qxe5

Jun-22-09  WhiteRook48: putting the king to e8 is stupid
Jun-07-11  lemonadepawn: @ValenFrog If 10...Qxe5, then 11.Re1 Ne4 12.Qf3 and Black loses a Knight.
Jan-07-13  FISCHERboy: Nice combo 6. Nxf7! and 7. Bxe6. But a 2000+ player today would have seen such trap. Again, Morphy was like a GM playing against 2000-below competition. Not fair. ^_^

  Oliveira: <lemonadepawn: @ValenFrog If 10...Qxe5, then 11.Re1 Ne4 12.Qf3 and Black loses a Knight> But 12... ♗xf2+ 13.♔h1 ♗xe1 isn't good for white. It's better to respond 11... ♘e4 with 12.♘c3, and then after 12... ♗xf2+ 13.♔f1 ♗xe1 14.♕xe1 I think the position is about equal.

Position after 14.Qxe1

Jan-05-15  Ke2: I love the 14-move knockouts. Ke8? must be bad. You can actually play 7... dxe6 8. Qxd8 Bb4+ 9.Qd2 Bxd2 10.Nxd2 and be down a pawn, but best is 7... Kxe6 (although you might lose in 12 moves instead of 14).
