Feb-21-08  Riverbeast: Morphy crushing a first class potz in 19 moves, giving knight odds...

Reminds me of how we used to hustle chessplaying freshmen out of a few dollars in high know, the kids who used to beat their parents and small group of friends, so they thought they knew how to play...

  Calli: Corrected the year from 1859 to 1857. It was played during the 1st American Chess Congress. The first publication was probably Marache in his NY Clipper column of December 19, 1857, although he identifies Black as "Amateur".

  Korora: The ♔ makes for a rather risky guard, because it is arguably the easiest piece to deflect.

Was 14... ♕xe5 ♙-snatching? That's how it looks AFATPCT (As Far As This Patzer Can Tell)
