Paul Morphy. Possibly the greatest player alive, and equal to Fischer in my standards. He was announced as the unofficial World Champion by many, and he faced notable figures, although he never played against Howard Staunton (it is believed Staunton was afraid). The game I will be showing today shows the power of pawns and sacrifice. Yes, it is a signature KGA, or King's Gambit Accepted. It shows the pure tactical power of Morphy, and is a Morphy Masterpiece.

 

EDITT:: Mistake of the date. It is actually 1856. Sorry guys, I was tired... :P
