  1. God of chess 🙂 The only one ever exist !

  2. ChAsed the king all the way to the other side 😂😂😂😂
    As a beginner my king went for a walkabout as well. Opponent asked what you doing?? “Going for a walk!”
    I won at the end 😂😂😂😂
    Was purely to confuse him!!

  3. That is why it is not advisable to eat the pawn with the knight on d5.

  4. This must be the most beautiful game of chess ever

  5. Una delle famose partite in cui Morphy dava la torre di vantaggio e annichiliva lo avversario …. ad esempio col fegatello…

  6. Absence of rook made it possible. But why is the rook absent?!

  7. this doesnt show how good morphy is (even tho he is), but just how overpowered the queen is

  8. 프라이드 리버 최선대응도 안되는 상대면 레이팅 1000수준일건데 아마추어라기에도 부끄럽다
