Paul Morphy Vs Consultants (Count Isouard & Duke of Brunswick), Paris 1858 — Morphy, an absolute attacking monster, produces a legendary 17 move classic. This has got to be one of my favorite games of all time, as the New Orleans native literally introduces a new threat with every single move. He clearly demonstrates the 3 Basic Opening Principles:

1. Control the center.
2. Develop your pieces.
3. Protect your king.

An extremely impressive victory by the 21 year-old Paul Morphy!

Note: The story about this game taking place in a theatre and how he played this game in a rushed way is probably an urban myth 🙂
