Aug-16-04  InspiredByMorphy: Nice game by Kolisch. 14. ... g5 is insane though.
Feb-15-05  raydot: I'm a little surprised, given that Schulten had already lost to the Falkbeer against Morphy two years earlier (J Schulten vs Morphy, 1857) that he didn't find a way to do a bit better! I think it's that 8 Be2 that gives him the problems.
Feb-15-05  raydot: 14. ...g5 seems crazy, but it does have the payoff, especially against 17. h3, which just looks like a blunder. Who was this guy?
Feb-20-05  mrdasd: According to another source, the move played was 14...Bg4. This makes more sense with the following moves. In any event, 22.Qg3 is a blunder in either version. Kolisch was a strong player, about 2570 projected rating.

  keypusher: Schulten deserves some credit too. He was demolished by all the greats of his time, often in spectacular games. He played aggressively even against superior opposition and seemed to enjoy pretty defeats. And every once in a while lighting would strike. He beat Morphy in 18 moves once, although the game is not in the database.

If I remember right he was a wine merchant. I am sure <SBC> would know.

Jun-28-10  YoungEd: I'd guess that <mrdasd> is right; 15. ♖f2 makes some sense after ♗g4 by Black, but not otherwise. When I saw 15. ♖f2, I just wondered why White didn't try 0-0-0.
