P.C. Morphy vs L. Paulsen October 20, 1857

Let’s take a trip in the way-back machine to look at a game played between two legends. Here Morphy takes down Paulsen in a very complicated King’s Knight game. Paulsen ends up giving up his Queen for 2 rooks, but Morphy masterfully gobbles up pawns and overwhelms his opponent with pushed passed pawns.

Looking forward to the day that I can play a 54 move game blindfolded!
