Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-06-04  who: Maurian won!!! and with only knight odds.
Jan-09-05  TheEyeOfMordor: I think that Morphy managed to outplay his opponent but then made several mistakes. I think Morphy should be better, maybe even winning if he exchanges Rooks on the 24th move instead of 24.c7?. Later he refuses the perpetual and makes an unsound Rook sacrifice 31.Rxe4?,which loses the game since that paves the way for 35..Rxc7! which turns the game into a winning pawn endgame since Maurians f-pawn is passed.
Jan-09-05  bishopmate: Morphy's probably the only player ever to play almost all his games with odds, and win 95% of them, its unbelievable--some of his plays still make me shiver after seeing them 4-5 times.
Jan-26-09  WhiteRook48: Morphy always tends to do that.
