Dec-19-05  Neurotic Patzer: Pretty unremarkable struggle but the way in which Morphy builds his attack is instructive.
Sep-26-08  I Offer You A Resign: 6. a4! and Black is pretty much forced to take the gambit.
Sep-26-08  I Offer You A Resign: Very well played game! Many people could learn from this!
Nov-20-12  Cemoblanca: 13...Qe7? Already a losing move, because Morphy was sitting in front of him! ;) Better was 13...Bd6! 14.g3 (14.Bxf7?? Kf8! 15.Rd1 Dxa1 16.Nc3 Ne7 17.Bh5 (17.Nb5 Qe5!) 17...Ng6!, etc.) 14...Qxa1 15.Bb2 Qxa5 16.Bxg7 Qh5! 17.Bxh8 Nh6! 18.Nc3 Ng4 19.h4 c6!, etc. 15...Bxc3?! (15...0-0! 16.e5 & then 16...Bxc3 17.Qxc3 Ne4!, etc.)

Well, Black should hold this (or (nowadays) even win), but it's definitely not an easy task.

Maybe I'll check this out later, but Black definitely lost too much tempo with his forth & back Queen moves while white can calmly improves his position, for example 13...Qe7, 21...Qe5 or 22...Qe7. Completely meaningless.
