|Dec-20-06|| ||jaime gallegos: this man defeated Steinitz, Blackburne, and Morphy ! he deserve a biography on this place !|
|Dec-20-06|| ||keypusher: <jaime gallegos> This man made up most of his famous "wins." <SBC> could probably write an interesting bio, though.|
|Jan-02-09|| ||YJGYJ: I agree that Deacon needs a Bio but even a search on the internet has very few answers as to who he was.|

|Apr-03-15|| ||MissScarlett: An account of the Deacon-Morphy controversy: http://www.edochess.ca/batgirl/morp...|
But if everything's so clear, why are there three Morphy-Deacon games here?
|Apr-03-15|| ||OhioChessFan: From <SBC> link:
<Staunton, who published the games, at worst knowing they were forgeries or at least accepting them without question, whereas they should have raised a red flag>
I have a problem with this claim. Is <SBC> a historical mind reader? How does she know Stauntion accepted them without question? What, exactly, is required of a person to do before publishing a game before they can be accused of doing so without question? Why, exactly, should those games have raised a red flag? Who pursued the cousin and the waiter to see if they'd verify the account? Is <SB> dismissing those claimed witnesses "without question"? Why does Mr. Deacon provide so much detail when almost all fraudulent claims are made in the most vague terms?
