Jun-08-05  prinsallan: Thanks <chessgames.com>. Good thing too, since Kipping plays very
good in this one. Morphy was blindfolded and was close to recovery though.

V e r y g o o d g a m e.

Jan-15-08  MorphyMatt: Whoa!! Morphy's only loss in the cg database that wasn't odds and under 30 moves.
Jan-15-08  DarthStapler: Wow, Morphy lost one
Jun-02-08  norcist: he did play blindfolded
Nov-25-08  atahualpa yupanqui: I just noticed that Black have a good advantage but is there a win? It seem like white have still very good piece to protect his king

Apr-06-09  sfm: I think most young people will not get this pun?!
In the late 1880ies Rudyard Kipling began to gain fame as a writer. At a party a young man becomes interested in a young lady. He opens with: "- Do you like Kipling?"
To his surprise she blushes and answers:
"- I don't know, you naughty boy, I've never kippled."
Apr-06-09  itsatimemachine: Hahah! I thought the pun was a play on internet meme "do you liek mudkips." Generation gap!!
Apr-06-09  Alphastar: So, I heard you like to play h3.
Apr-06-09  weary willy: The problemist CS Kipping was active in the Birmingham and south Staffordshire areas in the 1930s, 40s and 50s (d 1963) ... several clubs were named in his honour (Walsall Kipping, Wolverhampton Kipping) - not clear about relationship with the winner of this game (but expect there is some!)

When you say "young people", you mean <140 years old?
Apr-06-09  OnlyBelieve: *laughs about mudkips comment*

The Haxo Gambit is just a fancy name for the Italian Gambit, although the move order is switched.

Play the Italian Gambit. It's much cooler.

Apr-06-09  Jim Bartle: I did not post that last comment.

  kevin86: I would guess that only Morphy was blindfold. I wouldn't give much credit to the "Kipper".
Apr-06-09  mandy64: What about 6..Qf6? Is it a correct reply to 6.c3?
Apr-06-09  hedgeh0g: <I would guess that only Morphy was blindfold. I wouldn't give much credit to the "Kipper".>

Considering it was a blindfold exhibition and not a tournament, of course Morphy was the only blindfolded one, but it is a testament to his ability that even beating him in blindfold was a remarkable achievement.

Apr-06-09  PinnedPiece: <Jim Bartle: I did not post that last comment.>

Can't you request CG.COM to remove the Jim.Bartle account and spank the prankster?

I can't wait to see the <PinnedPeice> account appear...this is a new game with endless possibilities, I'm thinking.

.

Apr-06-09  Jim Bartle: I thought the fake account had been deleted. Guess not. My guess is that it's part of the chesszarg/"I like..." lineage. (Not "I like fishes," but some imitators.)
Apr-06-09  PinnedPiece: By the way <JB> an avatar would put paid to the shadow's fun. Maybe CG.com could provide you with a courtesy avatar until they get the other nuisance filtered out?

Apr-06-09  Jim Bartle: Thanks, PinnedP. I think I'll ask a friend to use his credit card to get a full membership. It's far past time anyway.

  whiteshark: I wonder where Morphy could have done better?
Apr-06-09  hedgeh0g: I realise that how people spend their free time is their business, but I am at a loss to understand why somebody would spend it posing as a kibitzer on a chess site. It's completely beyond me.

May seem like a good idea, but I wouldn't do it until CG.COM make an effort here. Otherwise it sets a bad precedent.....

There is, of course, a history, and one <JB> probably isn't going to detail for you. The fake account is run by a person who has had several incarnations, each worse than the last. In his eyes, he is on a righteous vendetta.

Either that or he is one sadistic MF (mouth foamer, of course).
