Aug-16-04  InspiredByMorphy: 29.Rh6! What a move! This game should make puzzle of the day sometime with white to play and win on move 29. Whites handling of the opening is good too.
Oct-14-04  InspiredByMorphy: I take it back. Whites handling of the opening was nothing special. In fact I like blacks position after 15. ...Qf6 because of better development. Perhaps whites isolated pawn could become a target of attack as well.
Jul-31-05  SneechLatke: 6...f5!?!? An interesting twist on the classic "fork trick," though it's hard to tell whether this decision was justified, since Black lost the game because of later tactical errors.

Black could have secured at least equality with simply 6...de4 7.♗xe4 ♗d6.

May-19-09  WhiteRook48: 6. Bd3 is best for White. For Black, I prefer 6...dxe4 7 Bxe4 f6 defending the e5-pawn again, as white is threatening 8. Bxc6+ bxc6 9 Nxe5
