Celebrating Independence Day with The Opera Game

Dark Qiviut


American chess master Paul Morphy is widely considered to be the greatest chess player in the 19th Century. Many of his chess matches are used to teach others about the game, from rapid piece development to sacrifices. His most famous, and widely considered the most beautiful, game took place in a Paris opera house in 1858. Morphy — playing the white pieces — faced the partnership of the Duke of Brunswick and Count Isouard. Watch how it unfolds.
