Apr-17-11  Calli: If 36.Nd3 then Bd5 is mate in the middle for Maurian. He was now too strong for Rook odds.
Mar-07-21  paulmorphy1969: In the New Orleans Sunday Star 1866.01.21 has been added the month in which this party was played January 1858 published without the opponent's name see link: http://www.chessarch.com/excavation... ? a = 1 & source = New_Orleans_Sunday_Star & date = 1866.01.21- In Macon Shibut's book (year only) game 156 and Maroczy's book (Year and month) game 94 and Chessgame.com erroneously ends with 35 moves instead of 36, skipping the real move 35 f5+ Ke6.
