Jan-02-07  MrMelad: 10 Qh5!! What a move, sacrifing bishop, knight and a pawn for not such an obvious mating attack.

And that after giving rook odds.. Show me Kramnik play like this...

Jan-02-07  Happypuppet: This looked a lot like a Tal sac after I saw the amount of maneuvering required after Morphy gave up all that material.
Jan-26-09  WhiteRook48: doesn't 25 Rf3 work?
Mar-28-09  WhiteRook48: Morphy should try giving NN the white pieces
Mar-28-09  sheaf: <whiterook48>Rf3 Qd7 Qh4+ Kg6 Rg3+ Qg4 Rxg3#..Rf4 Qf8 Rh3+ Qh6 Rxh6# is of course more efficient..;-)
Apr-11-14  yureesystem: This a fine attack on move 11, white queenside pieces is still under-develop, the way Morphy conducted his attack is outstanding.
