Mar-03-04  Whitehat1963: Sure it's only with odds, but Maurian toys with Morphy in the endgame.
Nov-13-05  Ernest van der Sar: Maurian toys with Morphy?? I'd say Morphy is toying with Maurian. He refuses to resign a clearly lost game. In words he says: "Here I am, come and get me." Basically the same story as starting a game a knight down.
Mar-02-07  wolfmaster: Maurian must have been a seriously good player to have beaten Morphy with anything less than queen odds!
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: well Maurian lost a lot of games too, seeing as there are several games where he loses with the white pieces, rook odds, pawn odds, and move odds. but then he got better and started outplaying his opponent. Qxa1+ at the end was very good. You have to get the king stuck in the corner. I wonder what would happen if Maurian didn't promote to queens. The old Nakamura tradition, I guess? :) LOL
Jan-02-09  WhiteRook48: poor g2-pawn. He never moves and then the game's called: OVER!! only consolation is he won, but the other pieces did all the work.
