Here's a great Morphy game that everyone should check out. It's very short, but filled with tactics. Morphy, playing without his queenside rook, sacrifices a few pawns to set up an attack. His opponent, feeling the pressure, decides to trade queens. It seems to be a wise decision, but Morphy then stuns him with an unexpected corner mate. You won't want to miss it!
