  1. So brutal was this attack that I barely was able to breath.

  2. For the lpve of Good what is the name of this piece?

  3. These men eating, sleep and on the throne of Chess

  4. What's funny is that this attack would have not been possible if the backrank was fully protected, so not only did he played with rook odds, he actually used the absence of the rook to finish the attack

  5. What is the name of this chess platform???

  6. I like how by going back and forth at the end, it looks like the king and rook are dancing. It's like emoting in chess

  7. I think morphy is playing against his father

  8. I've seen many Paul Morphy games. I haven't seen this one. Where is this one recorded, what's the source? Vs who? NN or someone else?

  9. Maybe Paul is genius, but the opponent’s game is very bad:)

  10. He invited him to his place, accompanied by his wife, let the wife stay outside, and buried him inside. Brutal.

  11. He could be around 2400 by hikaru😅

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