Morphys Masterpeices
Compiled by HailM0rphy
--*--

Some of Morphys most brilliant (and educational) wins :) ---Morphy rules of engagement---
1 All pieces must be involved in an attack!
2 White bishop must be ready to eat the f7 square! 3 Play nothing but 1 E4/ 1E5 and gambits!
4 Danger - Beware of endgame!
5 Protect your king! ..While at the same time preventing opponent castle! A piece sacrafice is worth this!

And most importantly... Il plantera la banniere de Castille sur le murs de Madrid, au cri de Ville gangnee, et le petit roi s'en ira tout penaud." In English, "He will plant the banner of the Castille on the walls of Madrid, screaming : The city is conquered and the little king will have to go
