Daily Tactic July 17, 2008

Today's game is Morphy-Baucher from an 1858 Paris simul. It features two tactical devices: the double attack and demolition of pawn structure.

Turn up the sound and enjoy Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67 - I. Allegro con brio.

Daily Tactic July 14, 2008

The colors are reversed compared to yesterday. Today it is Morphy as White against Harrwitz in Paris, 1858. The opening transposes into a Ruy Lopez: C62.

After 30. c5 Harrwitz takes on c5 with his rook setting up a combination that would not work if the rook is still on the seventh rank -- do you see why? Morphy then delivers the fatal blow with 31. ?
