Barnes played excellent endgame. Those who say Morphy played patzers are wrong.
You also must look at Morphy's games through "romantic" glasses. 'Twas the style...
Morphy's games are my favorite to study. And quite often, I just like to run through them for fun. The guy was brilliant.
how morphy really got stone & at bishop odds & twice too
Here's another great Morphy game. In many (most?) of the Morphy games I've played through from the book so far, M has had his king out in the open, yet he still wins. Morphy didn't seem to play many "quiet" games!
Keep the interesting Morphy games coming, guys.
You've inspired me to dig out my battered copy of Reti's 'Masters of the chessboard' which I haven't looked at since I was a kid. I particularly remember the above game from the book and Morphy's 5...Nh6 which refuted White's concept, compared to the 'natural' 5...Ne5 which would give white a much improved version.
Some instructive alternative lines in the game vs Meek.
the meek inherited dust.
That game in the original post is just sick. I'd never seen it before -- thanks!
