Paul Morphy went crazy because of playing too much blindfold chess! I don't believe it to be true, but chess can drive anybody nuts. Paul Morphy was a daring, attacking wildman. He was notorius for using unsound openings only to rule with his superior tactical abilities. He traveled the world taking on the best and won. He played masters and above BLINDFOLDED at 8 a time. He was instinctually the best of the best attcking chess players ever. Check out the romping he gives in this game with Capdeville.
