  1. Morphy had a big inheritance essentially and didn’t need to work. He tried to start a law practice but didn’t stick with it.

  2. Morphy was the architype of a crazy genius. He went gradually insane and eventually lost his mind

  3. 4:45 My true reaction: "bree-illiant… bre-illiant… Bellissimo!" [chef's kiss]

  4. Bro i mated a homie by castling and he told me it was illegal. What the fuck.

  5. Morphy composed his first chess puzzle at age 10.

  6. No particular "genius" by Morphy here. …
    …It's just that his opponents were all п00бs. 😛

  7. He looks so creative in doing the moves 😮

  8. There is no “chess genius”, there is only genius’s who enjoy playing chess.

  9. he could beat anyone today especially with all the technology and new theories

  10. It's amazing that Morphy had only a limited number of chess books to study from (if he did at all) but yet develop chess theory himself. He was just 12 in this game, and would sacifice pieces to checkmate. Most players do not want to sacifice a piece, but his extraordinary calculating and creative play makes his games very excting to study. He was the best of all time.

  11. Amazing video! That first checkmate was SUPER sick

  12. that first one was out of nowhere

  13. I am surprised by the relation between this video's quality, and the numbers on this channel.

  14. He is a super hard worker.he said chess is sign of lost childhood.

  15. Fue el mejor porque era el mejor o por la baja calidad de competidores? Me queda esa duda. Que habria hecho contra Bobby Magnus Nakamura Kasparov Capablanca?

  16. beautiful games thank you, its amazing Paul gave his opponents a piece and wins , to me it speaks of his mastery of the board, of course this was before internet and online games , i wonder if " masters " still play a piece down in starting in 2024

  17. Thanks! beautiful games, honestly amazing playing, starting a piece down

  18. The best player in the world, by far, if you compare him against the competition he faced. Head and shoulders above everyone else.
