Nov-25-05  aw1988: ...Nd7 shows the hopelessness of White's situation. The average player might slowly unwind the pieces, but the knight is infiltrating.
Oct-10-09  tentsewang: What to say, I am always speechless when studying morphy's abstract games. Genius!!
Nov-08-18  Mini Morphy: I like 24. rook beats e5!
Jun-22-20  RookFile: Morphy was very strong on the black side of these gambits. He had an active style of counterplay and often returned the gambited material and took over the game.
