This is a chess game played in 1858 between a 19th Century genius, Paul Morphy of New Orleans, and an amateur. This game acts as a nice example of attacking play, culminating in a brilliant queen sacrifice.
The finishing move pawn-f6 made my jaw drop. That was a thing of beauty.
Many thanks for another excellent video.
When ever I finish watching one of your videos I feel like I have tons of new ideas that I want to try in my own games. Great stuff.
Top notch as usual. Speaking of startling tactics, have you considered a look at Nezhmetdinov? Or perhaps you have already?
ur welcome, but we should be the ones thanking you
I can't respond to all comments, but do know that I read them all. Thanks again.
You have a great style of tutoring. I hope there's more lessons coming. Thanx a lot!
jerry is THE best (online)-teacher !
Really enjoyed this thank you very much for posting, I must set sail with Capt Evans one day!
Thank you for the correction Gil-Gandel. I appreciate all the feedback/compliments I'm receiving. *handshake*
u can be one hell of a teacher !
Thanks very much. Nitpick: that's "Evans Gambit", no apostrophe, the inventor's name was Captain Evans.
The opening goes in and out of style - it's more than a century since Steinitz and Chigorin played it again and again in a World Championship match, but even Kasparov has used it occasionally. I'm not brave enough to use it though.
Very creative attacking by Morphy, however that amateur was playing very very poorly, I am quite sure I can beat him.
Great video. Thank you very much.
I'm really not sure redfox.
Is the move Bd6 the reason why its play has declined.
wow really gr8 game it shows just how much more important positional advantage is compared to material advantage ....learnt a lot
I appreciate the feedback from everyone. *handshake*
Very good video!
