Hi all

I recommend the following annotation to be checked out and feedback given to the game annotator who is: EnasYorl

Game quotation:

A game in which the meek do not inherit the earth

Game introduction:

Judge Alexander Beaufort Meek (1814-1865)was the president of, and participant in, the first American national chess congress in 1857. A knockout competition without seeding this game was from the second round. Chess history remembers Meek as a punching bag for Paul Morphy, but in his time he was regarded as a strong player. Outside of the chess world he had a distinguished legal career, serving as assistant secretary to the treasury under President Polk.

Game conclusions:

1. Morphy could play closed as well as open positions with style.
2. Losing games against a world champion may earn you the immortality that a lifetime of public service does not.
