Kibitzer's Corner
May-19-12  e4 resigns: Morphy seemed to have a strong sense of defense: when your opponent has the initiate for pawn sacrifices, seek exchanges.
Jun-20-12  Llawdogg: When ahead in material, exchange as many pieces as possible, especially queens.
Jul-13-12  e4 resigns: Sorry I didn't make that more clear,
Usually in pieces, not so much in pawns (there are exceptions)

  sea7kenp: I like 29 Bb4, which X-Rays Black's Knight behind his Rook. After 29 ... Rd8, White continues the Piece Exchanges mentioned earlier, leveraging his extra Pawns.
