Daily Tactic July 1, 2008

Morphy played this game in London, 1858, against John Owen at "pawn and move" odds -- as Black and without his f-pawn. Owen moves his rook to e3 to protect the vulnerable f2 square. Can you see how Morphy finished him off?

Very nice tactic by Morphy. Nice bishop sac to remove the defender from the back rank. Beauty in simplicity.
