|Nov-25-05|| ||AlexanderMorphy: his game against pillsbury is a real classic if you ask me....some will argue that all quick draws are boring, well maybe those people should take a look at this 24 move draw to change their opinions. However good the game might have been, i have heard stories that the big masters actually told halprin what to play against the berlin defense, a couple of novelties. Halprin then dully executed his homework against pillsbury. Anyway it's worth a look.|
|Sep-18-06|| ||percyblakeney: Halprin's chess career was very short, but he did have some good results. He for example won all the games he played against Janowski (when the latter was a much better player than when he played for the World Championship):|

|Oct-25-14|| ||Karpova: Halprin lately [i. e. late 1888 or early 1889] lost a 5-games match against <Nikolaus Ornstein> (not to be confused with Josef Ornstein), the librarian of the New Vienna Chess Club. The score was +2 -1 =2 in favour of Ornstein (results from his point of view: 1 = 1 = 0)|
