Onlinechesslessons present to you “Paul Morphy Vs. The Consultants, a game (supposedly) played in 1858 in a Paris theatre between Paul Morphy and a group of 2 relatively experienced amateurs. The game showcases how control of the center and quick attack and development led to an easy win for Morphy. It also showcases brilliant piece sacrifices for control of the center, showing once again that chess isn’t always about material.”
