Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-15-05  InspiredByMorphy: 11. ...Ne5 was an interesting attempt to open the position but it unnecessarily gives the gambited pawn back. Not to mention Morphy loved nothing more than an open position.
Nov-27-05  aw1988: I don't know, I think the real howler is Ba5, I mean, what does it do?
Dec-21-07  nimh: Rybka 2.3.1 mp, AMD X2 2.01GHz, 10 min per move, threshold 0.33.

Morphy no mistakes!

Mongredien 5 mistakes:
11...Ne5 0.02 (11...Na5 -0.35)
15...Ba5 3.22 (15...Bd7 -0.33)
16...b5 4.51 (16...c6 3.18)
20...Rae8 8.69 (20...Qd8 4.49)
21...Qxa1 11.34 (21...R4e7 8.67)

Dec-21-07  Riverbeast: Pretty weak play by Mongredien..but according to his bio he was a whipping boy for these guys (Harrwitz and Steinitz also shut him out)
Oct-19-16  RookFile: 16. Qa4 is one of those moves where black says "Uh oh". Resigns was probably a good option.
