Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-04  InspiredByMorphy: 9. ...Nxh1 seems to be blacks mistake. The knight must be worth more on g3 than whites trapped and undeveloped rook. I think 9. ...d5 10.Bxd5 Bh3 looks better.
Nov-06-05  Central Control: That is absolutely correct, in this position Black cannot go for the rook.

After 9... d5 10. Bxd5 Bh3 I would suggest 11. Qe1 for White.

Feb-19-06  MorphyMatt: 13... ♔xe6 14. ♕f7#
Mar-16-15  apexin: Always thought Morrisons was better than Marks and Spencer.
