White has sacrificed his Rook on h1 and now Black is offering to exchange Queens. Can you find Paul Morphy’s idea? White to play.


One thought on “Chess Tactic #174: Morphy – Anderssen”

  • slavcho says :

    Idea is to win the queen , starting with Nf6+Kd8, then we have Bxc7+Kxc7(king must take on c7 no other choice), then Nd5+ forking the queen and the king, black has three pieces for the queen, the fact that the black king isn’t safe will be in morphy’s favour, and he knows how to exploit it
