  Ron: 29. Re1+ as played by the great Morphy leads to a forced mate; however, it seems that there is a little shorter way to checkmate: 29. Qxc7 Ke8 30. Re1+ Qe5 31. Rxe5+ Kf8 32. Qxf7 mate
Apr-05-05  mjk: <Ron> 29.♖e1+ mates in three more moves, too. I don't see a shorter way.
Apr-05-05  mack: God, Morphy's games are so boring.
Apr-05-05  aw1988: Oh yeah, Dullsville.
Jul-13-05  calman543: What happens after 29.. Kd6 ?

  tpstar: 29 ... Kd6 30. Nxf7+ wins the Queen, otherwise 30 ... Kd7 31. Qd5+ mates.
Oct-28-07  zahbaz: What is white's response if black captures after 20.Nf5?
Oct-28-07  InspiredByMorphy: <zahbaz> 20. ...gxf5 21.Nf6+ Nxf6 22.gxf6+ K moves 23.Qxh5# or 21. ...Kh8 22.Qxh5
Oct-29-07  zahbaz: That's clever...I didn't pick up on 21.Nf6+, which seems to lead to mate any which way you look at it. Thanks for the line, <InspiredByMorphy>.
