Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-07-06  Bobak Zahmat: If you don't castle against Morphy you are ready to be punished hard.
Apr-06-06  blingice: Well, I don't think Perrin is as badly beat as he thinks he is. Sure, he must trade a rook for a veritable pawn, but then he will have a pawn as compensation for a bishop. This is, of course, losing against Morphy, but I still don't think it was catastrophic as Perrin may have thought. Possibly still drawable, especially against a human.
Jan-13-09  WhiteRook48: and if you castle as Morphy than it is not likely that you will be punished hard.
Feb-18-09  WhiteRook48: he couldn't castle because of the bishop on A3.
Mar-28-09  WhiteRook48: 20 Rxd2 makes a nice pin here
