  Sneaky: 18 ...Kf8 19 Qd6+
Apr-28-04  WMD: I wonder if any other GM has lost a game without having moved either knight.

  Benzol: This looks like one of those 19th Century encounters.
May-04-05  fgh: Nice tactics during the game by white.

  perfidious: Do you suppose Quinteros had a chance to get to the nearest pay phone before getting wiped out?

Most will find this question odd, unless you've read Soltis' book, 'Confessions of a Grandmaster', lol.

  nfazli: this can be a pretty good puzzle after 19...Kf6, white to play and mate in 3...

  GrahamClayton: I managed to lose playing White in this variation. To this day I still don't know what I did wrong. :-)

Yeah, Morphy couldn't touch Browne for imagination. That's why Browne never even got to be a candidate in spite of being an outstanding player.

At least Morphy's opponents castled.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I suppose one can't really give 2 R & 2 Kn odds to a GM. Oh, and should not the title read, "What Can Browne Do *To* You?"
Jun-15-13  shakespeare: Nice example for the superiority of development vs. material
Jun-15-13  brankat: Poor Quinteros :-)
Jun-15-13  morfishine: Incredible, its not like Black is 'NN'
Jun-15-13  pumping707: Greed Can kill some1 not only in chess......this is just an example....
Jun-15-13  Abdel Irada: <badbishops: Greed...usually good>

Thank you, Ivan Boesky.

Jun-15-13  PaulBl: Simply great. One wonders: what was Quinteros thinking during the game?
Jun-15-13  Abdel Irada: Thinking?

Jun-15-13  gars: Why did Quinteros make some moves that even I, a confirmed rabbit, would not make? And <perfidious>, please explain your remark to us all, thank you.
Jun-15-13  Abdel Irada: <perfidious: Do you suppose Quinteros had a chance to get to the nearest pay phone before getting wiped out?

I haven't, so please explain.

  Jarman: When my opponent plays something like 5. ...Qg4, I usually get the impression that he doesn't feel like going the distance on the day, and he couldn't care less about the result. Maybe Quinteros was even happy to be done with it quickly.
