My Paul Morphy style game.

DontRunSon

I don't play like this. But, I purchased the Paul Morphy Move by Move book 2 days ago. I'm on game 8 or 10. Without trying to change my game (1 min games) I realized that I'm playing in that style (I don't play E4 but I guess I will now) Even the games that I'm losing, I'm taking more risk than I normally do, opening likes, pushing to own the pace and sac sac sac. After this game, I'm looking forward to reading the whole book. I've never paid attention to Paul Morphy (I'm not a serious player) but man... This guy was something.

 

Sorry for the multiple post. First time figuring out hot to post a game.

You mean is a 1750 rated player that is playing 1 min games making the best moves? If so, are you ok mentally?

oh lol I didn't mean it like that. I meant after that destruction I was wondering if the black player was suffering from some stress from being demolished.

And I didn't notice that you said it was bullet, my bad

Nice ending to a nice game.

Another one.

I've played a few. Had some success. After just seeing 8 of his games my entire approach has changed. Gonna go thpguh another 8 of his games today! 

 

Maybe some of you already play like this so it's no big deal, but I never looked at his games just heard stories. This is the opposite of how I usually play.

 

Heres another 1 minute against a 1900 rated player

I think the pressure placed instantly makes them do dumb moves. Played a few games were it's the move they SHOULDN'T do and give me mate. This wouldn't happen if I had the exact same position but played in my regular boring style. I never get them to panic this much. Crazy stuff.

Here's a game that I ended up losing. Didn't see that rook and I lost the queen. But I felt Morphys powers even in this game. I've bee playing on and off for about 19 years. Never felt this power before! More!

Morphy would be proud!

Most of my games look like this now. I've changed my avatar to honor they guy that's made me play 150 points higher. 

 

My new message to those that I beat is "You've been Morphied".

Morphy’s play style is absolutely beautiful.

Another 2000 player bites the dust. Morphy style.

Since I posted and payed that game 10 days ago, I've gone up 200 points and have beaten 2000 rated players regularly. Something I couldn't do before. Amazing how going over just 8 games, maybe 12 now, has changed my entire view of the game. Non stop sac, opening lines, better feel for the game and most importantly, they crack under the "immense" pressure. I would say they crack way more than my game actually being solid, I don't think my calculations are solid, they are not. But they make a mistake first. And that's all I need.

 

Paul Morphy!
