Paul Morphy Goes For His Most Famous “Tricky Combination”

In this famous chess game Paul Morphy goes for a risky combination thus neglecting a quiet winning line and sacrifices his rook then queen (not accepted). Being unable to repel Morphy’s attack Bird makes a mistake while defending and quickly loses the game! In the end of the video as usual you can solve the daily puzzle (Morphy vs Alexander Meek, 1855).
