Black can reply 36. cxd5 <Qc2> instead, perhaps followed by 37. Qf3 Qxb2, in which case I don't see a good attack for Morphy.

Aug-30-06  MyriadChoices: Why is there no capture on the A pawn at the end?
Aug-30-06  RookFile: Well, 44... Qxa2 looks a little risky, but I don't see an immediate refutation.
