Jul-11-05  InspiredByMorphy: A very tight game before black played the entombing 22. ...Bxa2 . Although black gets three pawns for the piece, Im sure Morphy didnt mind. The knight becomes the deciding factor in the endgame.
Jan-10-06  morpstau: Again you are right I.S.M. I like the simple fact that Morphy uses J.W.S. favorite opening agaisnt him and beats him in a marathon. Treue morphy had the game won by move 1.
Feb-15-06  MorphyMatt: The book "Paul Morphy and the Evolution of Chess Theory" says that the offical record ends after 25... ♖xc3
Apr-02-07  MasterSavely: <InspiredByMorphy> i quite agree... but if it were some other player...he woulden't probally know how to use his knight as well and it might end up with knight vs queen, but Morphy knows his knights.
Jul-21-10  aj415: Wow schulten has played the opening impressively, by move 14 im sure most people would prefer black
Nov-21-12  kasparvez: Ah! Schulten gives a good fight! 22...Bxa2? You can't play that against Morphy!

  fredthebear: My jaw dropped when Morphy offered an exchange of queens on move 9!?! Black did not follow up his lead in development very well and just forked over the h-file material. IMHO, Black should have kept his bishop on board and gone after White's isolated g-pawn.
Apr-20-17  Saniyat24: From move 37 onward Morphy is just unstoppable....!
