Jan-10-06  morpstau: Another Morphy crush! This time its the old buzzard and drunk j.h. schulnton. What a quack to waste the time of such a prestine player of morphys caliber.
May-15-06  mjk: Was Morphy signalling a draw offer at move 14? Did they have draw by repetition back then?
Jul-25-07  flanary: After 31.Qxh3 doesn't white have a decent game? (Assuming he wasn't drunk or psychologically predisposed to lose to morphy.)
Aug-02-07  Judah: <mjk>, there was no repetition at move 14.
Aug-20-12  HansMeier555: 31. qh3
Nov-20-16  CaringLuv: 31.Qxh3 is very strong for White. I think it's White's best move.

  keypusher: Probably a bad game score. Guessing Morphy played 30...Bf1.
May-08-19  sneaky pete: If 30... Bf1 was played, why not after 31.c4 Bxc4 instead of 31.. Re8? This is the score as presented by David Lawson in the BCM, August 1978 and in Pride and Sorrow of Chess. I guess both players were drunk. Lawson too, maybe.
