Napoleon Marache vs Paul Morphy

Italian Game, The Evans Gambit, New York 1857

Paul Morphy plays the black side of the Evans Gambit against Napoleon Marache and makes it look easy. He finishes the game with a magnificent mate and creates a beautiful miniature as usual.

Napoleon Marache vs Paul Morphy

Italian Game, The Evans Gambit, New York

Paul Morphy was in my opinion the greatest player of the 1800’s. He was head and shoulders above the rest of his competition. Bobby Fischer among others looked up to the way Morphy handled open games especially. It didn’t matter which side of the board you were on, Morphy outclassed all competition in openings starting with 1. e4 e5. In this game we see him take the black side of an Evans gambit. Typically, this opening leads to miniatures from the white player’s point of view but with Morphy on the black side, the opposite happens. Enjoy the show, you are in for a treat!
