May-04-07  Jack Kerouac: SLAUGHTER!
Jul-19-07  RookFile: You can say that again. De Riviere looks like he has no business even playing Morphy here.
Mar-03-08  JimmyVermeer: White can do Qh5# on his 27th move. De Riviere could have delayed mate a bit longer by playing differently on his 20th move: 20 Rd1 Bd4 21 Rxd4 Nxd4 22 Ne5+ Kxg5 23 Qe3+ Kf6 24 Ng4+ Kf5 25 Re5+ Qxe5 26 Qxe5+ Kg6 27 Qf6+ Kh5 28 h3 Nf5 29 Qxf5+ Kh4 30 Qf6+ Kh5 31 Qh6#

Morphy was clearly a stronger player than De Riviere, but you can't blame him for trying.

Sep-20-16  talhal20: Its pathetic for Riviere
