  tamar: Morphy I mean :)

Journoud shows bravery, and his 17...Bf5 even looks for a moment like it gains a tempo on the e4 rook but 18 Rd1 Qf6 19 Ne5 makes the rook immune.

Jul-26-09  Granny O Doul: Odd that Morphy did not play 27.Qe6+, unless this was a blindfold game.

Yes, it does win immediately by picking up the rook on h8 (Kf8 Qf6+ Ke8 Qxh8+). After the played Qb4+ Journoud should have played 27. ... Rd6 instead of giving away the bishop with c5 and with best play white doesn't seem to have more than a draw.

Feb-23-15  Clasher123: Morphy is the MAN!! King of Chess. Best precentage rate of winning games out of any Grandmaster.EVER!
