|Apr-10-12|| ||yoozum: This almost looks like a Morphy game from the 1800's.|

Apart from the opening, yes.

Well Morphy only lived in 1800's.
|Apr-10-12|| ||messachess: I think 15..Nxd4 was a mistake. Black needs to try to defend the a3-f8 diagonal from Ba3. I would say 15..N5b4. That seems to make castling feasible if black can afford the tempo for h6.--can't afford not to. So, 15..N5b4. 16.0-0 Nc2 17.Rb1 N6b4 and black stands a little better than the game.|
|Apr-10-12|| ||twinlark: Moro at his vicious best.|
|Apr-10-12|| ||Octal: Does anyone feel bad for Jakovenko?
I mean, I love Moro and all, but I'm sure it feels pretty bad for a 2700 to lose like this.
|Apr-10-12|| ||Octal: <messachess>: check out this game Morozevich vs I Khairullin, 2012|
|Apr-11-12|| ||messachess: <Ocatal> It looks like it might be standard book, but for black to permit the advance of the <e> pawn seems doomed to failure, here as well as in the game you shared. (I have a feeling that Moro has mastered this variation.)|
|Apr-11-12|| ||Everett: This looks like a great Geller Gambit variation, with a massive development lead for White. |
17.Bxd5 is a critical moment and seems to lead by force to 22.Qb3. White is two pawns down but has scope for all his pieces, while Black's K is stuck in the center and is playing without a R.
|Apr-12-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Fantastic piece play by Morozevich!
|Aug-16-12|| ||GrahamClayton: You know you are in trouble when you have to play moves like 22...h5 and 23...h6 to get one of your pieces into play. The White bishop on a3 is a monster!|
|Aug-16-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Completely different position, of course, but Fischer played h5 and Rh6 in winning the famous game Keres vs Fischer, 1959|
|Apr-11-14|| ||Everett: Funny, Jakovenko had another go at Moro in this variation, and it is Moro who deviates first with 9.h4!? and a subsequent rook lift. Morozevich vs Jakovenko, 2013|
