hay, how do we play a real game like against eachother
Yeah, this is from one of my favorite games. Otherwise I would never had seen it.
This looks familiar!!
This is hilarious, GM Becerra just wrote an article about this specific tactic as seen in Paul Morphy's game vs. Carl Isouard
Weirdly enough, I saw it, but didn't realise until afterwards that it was this game. These two moves were easy enough to figure out, but the ones just before were pretty much genius, and I doubt I would have had a chance of calculating that far ahead.
Definitely stood out as the Morphy Immortal game when i saw it.
I've never seen it but still got the puzzle right
I was considering another tactic until I recognised what game it was from.
Well the main path is clearly best as it's forced. Still, can black recover from rxn? Black threatens mate (Rd8 or Qb8).
Looks like after Rxd7 Kxd7 is winning for black, but as Bruce Pandolfini will tell you <<Morphy didn't want to play a long drawn out game with complications, so he went for the most accurate win so that he could get back his Opera>> :)
Best game ever! Wondered if I'd ever see it here.
Lol, I also recognized Morphy's game. I'm so proud of myself xD
OH! This is morphy's game! With the duke of... somewhere!
Fischer played this move while playing two people on the same team
This mate has way too many tags :P
