Daily Tactic July 29, 2008

Morphy-Conway, New York simul, 1859. This game is played at rook odds and features the tactical device of zwischenzug.
The zwischenzug (German for "intermediate move"), is a chess tactic in which a player, instead of playing the expected move (commonly a recapture of a piece that the opponent has just captured) first interpolates another move, posing an immediate threat that the opponent must answer, then plays the expected move.
