Nov-14-04  offramp: How does white win after 19...Kg7.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Chessical: <offramp> After your Kg7 idea <but> on move 18 Morphy's attack does not break through at all:

<18...Kg7 19.Bd3> Rf8 20.Ne5, Budzinsky is still holding his own.

With <19...Kg7> it is more hair-raising for Budzinsky but I cannot see a forced win for Morphy, e.g.

<20.Qe5+> Kg8 21.Ne4 Nc4 22.Qg3+ Kf8 23.Qf4+ Kg7 24.Qg4+ Kf8 25.Qf5+ Kg7 26.Qg4+ Kf8 =

Dec-18-04  Zembla: An exciting game nonetheless. Morphy sacrifices the exchange, then a B for 2 pawns & still keeps the draw in hand. A stylish way to finish too, giving # while his Q is pinned to his K.
Aug-24-05  sneaky pete: Sergeant suggests (probably based on Loewenthal and Maroczy) that after 19... Kg7 20.Qg4+ .. with 21.Re5 .. wins. He also quotes Maroczy's recommendation to play 16.Bxf5 .. first and only after 16... gxf5 17.Rxe7+ ..etc, to prevent the improvements black has on moves 17 and 18 in the actual game.
Sep-10-07  Ron: It seems that Morphy can win after 19. ... Kg7

19. ... Kg7 20 Qg4+ Kf8 21. Re5 (the Sergeant/Loewenthal/Maroczy suggestion) Rg8 22. Qf4+ Bf7 23. Ng5 Rxg5 24. Rxg5 Qe7 25. h4 Re8 26. Re5 Qd8 27. Qh6+ Kg8 28. Rg5+ Bg6 29. Nf3 Re6 30. h5

Oct-14-07  krippp: <Ron> Nice suggestion, though White wins faster and a lot more forcefully with: <23.Ne4 Rg7 24.Nfg5 Kg8 25.Nf6+ Kh8 26.Nfxh7>

But, does anyone have any winning (or even equalizing) lines for White after Black's <17...Kf6>? Black's position seems rather enduring after <Bxf5> is prevented... Of course it's still not a clear win for Black, but still...

Oct-15-07  mattmueck: How does white continue after 13...b6?
Apr-04-11  Llawdogg: Budzinski might have thought about castling at some point. Anyway, he's got a great name.
