Morphy to Zero

 

Paul Morphy to Alpha Zero at warp speed ..The evolution of chess…

A Chess Prodigy and Legend ..considered to have been the greatest chess master of his era and an unofficial World Chess Champion…

Morphy was born  (June 22, 1837 – July 10, 1884) in New Orleans to a wealthy and distinguished family. He learned to play chess by simply watching games between his father and uncle. His family soon recognized the boy’s talent and encouraged him to play at family gatherings, and by the age of nine he was considered to be one of the best players in the city. At just twelve years of age, Morphy defeated visiting Hungarian master Johann Lowenthal in a match of three games.(2 wins 1 draw)

Of Morphy’s 59 “serious” games—those played in matches and the 1857 New York tournament—he won 42, drew 9, and lost 8

 

“A popularly held theory about Paul Morphy is that if he returned to the chess world today and played our best contemporary players, he would come out the loser. Nothing is further from the truth. In a set match, Morphy would beat anybody alive today… Morphy was perhaps the most accurate chess player who ever lived. He had complete sight of the board and never blundered, in spite of the fact that he played quite rapidly, rarely taking more than five minutes to decide a move. Perhaps his only weakness was in closed games like the Dutch Defense. But even then, he was usually victorious because of his resourcefulness.” ~ Bobby Fischer
