Paul Morphy title

In this game played against Paul Morphy, Adolph Anderssen had to fit this now-historic match into the Christmas holidays. In some cases, two games were played in one day. This game and many others in the series gives lie to the myth that Anderssen was interested only in attacks on the King. Here, he answers a sharp assault on the Sicilian (repeated by Bobby Fischer more than a century later) with equal energy. The result is a violent game miniature by the great Paul Morphy in just seventeen moves.
