Kibitzer's Corner
May-05-05  chess man: Morphy's two Rooks and passed pawn are definitley powerful enough to force a resignation any day. Nice play by Morphy.
Sep-23-09  chaarl: <chess man> It's worse than that; the passed pawn will support a rook to give mate in 2 moves after a few checks by the white rook. (Rd2-f2, followed by Rg1 mate)
