Oct-13-10  Vinpi: Great attack ! The black pawn is very strong !
But why 19. ... ♖xd1? (19. ... ♖xf1!! 20. ♕xf1 ♗d5+! 21. ♘xd5 ♕e4+ 22. ♔g1 h2 #)
Feb-23-12  Lashab: Checked this game with engine.

Morphy's all moves are approved(maybe with 0.2 difference) by engine till the move 19 as Vinpi pointed out.

Then he had easier wins but opted to go into middle-game.

Jun-27-12  e4 resigns: Thanks for pointing that out Vinpi.
Nov-12-13  CaringLuv: White had better chances with 8.Nf3 followed by 9.Nc3(or 9.Nbd2 if Black plays Bg4) and 10.d4
Jan-28-16  juanhernandez: An appreciator for encouragement,
Something that doesn't cost.

  Honza Cervenka: 19...Rxd1 wins easily. Well, 19...Rxf1+ leads to quick mate but it doesn't matter.

  pdxjjb: I keep hoping one of my opponents will play something like 11 d4 in this game. But they never do. ;-)
