Nov-13-05  sleepkid: morphy must have felt sorry for maurian here, because he lets him win this one. the last few moves are morphy just giving the game away out of ennui.

Yeah, ennui and being a whole rook down probably had somethng to do with it. ;->

Nov-16-06  Tenderfoot: So I wonder at what move Morphy decided that maybe giving that rook away for a knight wasn't that good of an idea after all.
