Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-19-08  Autoreparaturwerkbau: It's kind of funny how allies' kingside disintegrates under Morphy's pressure.
Oct-24-11  Llawdogg: In A First Book Of Morphy, Frisco Del Rosario uses this game to teach how to approach the middle game beginning with 13 Qf4.
Jul-21-14  Ke2: Oddly Morphy played the exchange french in 6 out of 6 french games. Always made that extra tempo count with immediate pressure by Bg5.
Feb-05-17  RKnight: The end position might look like a Q win, but it's even stronger, mate in three: 26...Nf8, 27 Rxf8+ Kd7, 28 Bf6+, Re6, 29 Qxe6#.
