   Jan-12-14 H Jennings Nowell vs Philidor, 1788
Rory O Rion: Nowell had more than a possible chance, 56, Rxd5(instead of Qxc5), and capturing in turn Queen exchange with Ktxd4: then should Black capture Bishop 57, Bxb5, rook Rxb5+. 58. King is forced to Ka6(certainly not Ka7); now the Knight simply falls back 58. . . Ne2(white square) ...
   Jan-07-14 Bernard / Carlier vs Philidor, 1780 (replies)
Rory O Rion: Does anyone know under what circumstances this game was played? Following White's 21.Kg2, had Philidor played h2(instead of Rd8), White would not have been able to position pawn at g4; this strategic undersight/oversight allowed White's pawn(g4), to guard the Black Knight's ...
   Nov-28-10 McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 (replies)
Rory O Rion: Au Contraire, White's "sac"(move-8) was not "pointless": beside winning a pawn, it draws Black's Queen away from the King, allowing White to check his Highness, gaining another pawn; and then on move-11, a third pawn falls when White's Queen's Bishop boldly challenges her ...
   Feb-13-10 F Young vs Pillsbury, 1893 (replies)
Rory O Rion: But Young was Young
   Jul-22-07 Philidor vs NN, 1749 (replies)
Rory O Rion: And then there's 21. 'Pawn' b-6!
   Jul-19-07 Maseres vs Philidor, 1783 (replies)
Rory O Rion: Black's #29th move: QxQ(g2) shows an admirable quality in Philidor's play(Morphy had it too): he could have played Qxp(d4)threating&pinning White's Knight, but chooses to exchange Queens instead; keeping the game in play; here he appears conscious of his strength, choosing the ...
   May-16-07 Morphy vs Loewenthal, 1858 (replies)
Rory O Rion: What do You imagine to be a major drawback to Morphy playing 3 . .(P-e5)?
   May-14-07 Loewenthal vs Morphy, 1858 (replies)
Rory O Rion: Q? After Morphy's 26 . .(R-d1): what if White plays 27-(RxB-f7)? Notice: this position repeats when Morphy plays 28 . .(R-d1): Are these moves correct, or am i missing something?
   May-24-06 Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858 (replies)
Rory O Rion: Duh . . of course!
   Apr-22-06 Morphy vs NN, 1858 (replies)
Rory O Rion: 15: Kt-e5 is more commanding, don't you think?
