   Nov-08-06 D Chinasamy vs A A Najjar, 2004 (replies)
MorphyFan: Haha. I never knew that in the Bishop's Opening that black gets to move first.
   Nov-01-06 E Nemeth vs Fritz, 2000 (replies)
MorphyFan: I am not sure why black decided to throw away the knight with the dubious 17...Nh5, but white's threat, 18. Rxd5, does seem to pose difficulty for Black. Anyone see a better move for Fritzy than 17...Nh5?
   Nov-20-04 Pireska vs L Szollosi Jr, 1989
MorphyFan: man, Szollosi should be the poster boy for "dont bring your queen out too early"
   Apr-29-03 Prince Andrey Dadian of Mingrelia (replies)
MorphyFan: Ok, so maybe these games are somwhat contrived in nature. But they are beautifully contrived nonetheless. I remember somebody on this site talking about how true chess artists only worked with chess puzzles and problems because of how hard it is to create real beauty with an ...
   Apr-23-03 Karpov vs Lengyel, 1973 (replies)
MorphyFan: What about 42. Rd6?
   Apr-22-03 Tal vs K Klaman, 1957 (replies)
MorphyFan: Is it really safe to say that Tal won this game after 23. Bxf5? I must say that he is certainly winning, expecially after regaining the dead rook on f8 (beautiful forsight on Tal's part). But it still seems black had at least some fighting chess to play after the bishop sac. I ...
   Apr-16-03 Fischer vs W Dillard, 1964 (replies)
MorphyFan: Where did Bobby go wrong on this one? It looked to me like he was in perfect control of the game after move ten but then siddenly his queen (and the rest of his pieces) started getting pushed around. Do you guys think 15. Bd5 was an intentional Knight sac or was Fischer snoozing. ...
   Apr-09-03 Morphy vs J Schulten, 1857 (replies)
MorphyFan: Also, does anyone know why Morphy wasn't ever World Champion? From this database, it appears he could easily crush his contemporaries, and I pretty sure the championship existed in his day. So why not champ?
   Aug-25-02 Fischer vs A Anastasopoulos, 1968 (replies)
MorphyFan: i think that 15... Ne7 is meant to prevent 16. Nd5 which is a very difficult situation for black (especially with the potent tactical mind of Fischer at the reins). Also, I agree with Sneaky that 16. Rxd6 is how Fischer would have responded to taking the pawn at c2. Fischer once ...
   Aug-16-02 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
MorphyFan: The king's gambit is such a beatifull opening. It makes the game feel so dangerous and chaotic. Sometimes you can never tell who is really winning until the last few moves. I agree with sneaky in that 20. ed5! was definetly the game winner. I also thought that 20 Bd6 was a ...
