Nov-18-04  delterp: I love Morhpy games! This style of romantic chess is what drew me to the game. Intuitive sacrifice and mate instead of the 'win a pawn and win 70 moves later' chess. Dynamic and energetic. It appears black is in deep trouble after the discovered check by the queen. But black has seen it all and plunges ahead boldly. Makes me want to whip out a King's Gambit!
Dec-02-04  caballos2: 9.b3 is probably suicide.
Jan-10-06  morpstau: Thank you delterp and God bless chessplayers! A beutiful miniature and one in which Morphy picks up a free Queen. Your supposed to protect your majesty!lol
Apr-05-06  PolishPentium: Suggestion: 10 Nc3. Saves the N, prevents the (ultimately devasting) Queen intrusion and capture on a1
Aug-21-07  frank124c: Once again Morphy makes short shrift of his ememy! This game is an exception to the rule of not moving out your Queen early and shows that if you have the initiative you can move mountains.
Sep-02-11  pringle2003: Yes, this type or "Romantic" Chess must have been exhilirating to play compared to the over analyzed dreary play of today. Morphy was absolutely perfect at this game. His abilities never cease to amaze me.
Jan-14-16  talhal20: Can any Kibitzer say why did Morphy play 8..Nc6 considering the game lasted for only 17 moves?
Mar-02-18  CheckMateEndsTheGame: This was confusing I didn't know what was going on the first half
