Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-02-04  Saruman: 7.-Qxe4 was perhaps a bit too greedy. It seems as if though this guy lets a whole crowd of NN's play him all the time.
Premium Chessgames Member
  InspiredByMorphy: 4. ...Bc5 allows white to achieve superior development and a good position.
Oct-20-05  DeepBlade: White just developes by threating the Queen/Bishop.

What makes this game brilliant is the Bishop at B3.

A game to compare the bishop who just stands there all the time, Greco style Greco vs NN, 1620

Nov-15-11  AnalyzeThis: You deserve whatever happens to you as black when you play a move like ...Qxe4 in a double e pawn opening.

  Ziryab: Among Greco's best games, White's rapid <development> highlights that Paul Morphy gets too much credit. Put this one in front of a chess master without the names. Few will guess Greco.
