Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-19-03  lordazol: Morphys games as same as Mike Tysons box match.Short and effective.He has not only won the match but has found the shortest way
Nov-13-08  heuristic: looks better for WHT :
16.e5 Bxe5 17.Nxe5 Qxe5 18.Qb4 Qxd5 19.Qxb7
17.dxc6 Qxc6 18.Qd3 Be6 19.Rfd1 Be5
19.e5 fxe5 20.Ng5 Qd7 21.Ne4 0-0
21.Bxf4 Qxf4 22.Ra3 0-0-0 23.Qe3
23.f3 Bh5 24.f4 Rae8 25.b4 cxb4

looks better for BLK :
20...Bd6 21.b4 b6 22.f3 Bd7 23.a5
23...Rae8 24.Nb3 Kc8 25.a5 Kb8 26.Nxc5
27...Qb7 28.e6+ Ke8 29.Kg2 Rd8 30.d6

Jul-29-14  Ke2: <Lordazol> Yes, and he was often totally winning on Move ~10 with white, ~15 with black.
Jul-29-14  Ke2: In this case he was winning on move 6. 6... e4 depends on the resource Nxc4 or Qb4+, which is too shaky, and the e-pawn is going nowhere and doing nothing.
