Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-03-04  InspiredByMorphy: Morphys 15.c4 is perhaps the most impressive move of the game. It becomes a vital factor to the combinational storm on the black king. Instead of taking the rook, Morphy knows he has time to bring in the bishop pawn and still capture the rook. The 5 move mating net is a beauty. I cant believe he won like this a rook down in a mere 26 moves!
Mar-03-04  TrueFiendish: Presuming it was queen-rook odds, it must have been Rhc1+...but hang on, there's only one rook, so 'h' is unnecessary...but...oh, I'm getting confused.
Sep-24-05  blingice: That is one sick mate. GG Morph.
Sep-25-05  who: <IBM> so you could say you're inspired by him?
