Here is yet another game displaying Morphy's brilliancy in the game of chess. He played R Cremorne in London, 1859, using the King's Gambit: Declined. Morphy launched an attack beginning with 19. Bc3 placing Cremorne's position into an irrecoverably lost one. He dug deeper into Black's position with 25. Ba6! and play continued with 25... Ne7 26. e5 dxe5 27. Bxb7+ Rxb7 28. Qxb7 Kd8 and 29. dxe5 is where Black resigns!
