[Event "New Orleans"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Morphy"] [Black "Morphy, A."] [Result "1-0"] [ECO "C51"] [Opening "Evans Gambit Accepted"] 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4 Bxb4 5. c3 Bc5 6. d4 exd4 7. cxd4 Bb6 8. O-O Na5 {This loses time and puts the knight out of the game. Black wants to play ...d5, but he isn't ready to castle, so his king will feel a draft.} 9. Bd3 d5 10. exd5 Qxd5 {After this Black is losing. With the e-file open White is ready to jump on the enemy king. Black had to play 10...Ne7, though after 11 Ba3 it's pretty grim, since 11...O-O loses to 12 Re1 Re8 13 Ng5.} 11. Ba3 Be6 {Black sees the e-file needs protection, but this doesn't help.} 12. Nc3 Qd7 13. d5 Bxd5 14. Nxd5 Qxd5 15. Bb5+ { This shot deflects the queen from the center files allowing White to invade.} 15... Qxb5 16. Re1+ Ne7 17. Rb1 {White gets a little carried away with the deflection theme, as Black might resist a little by giving up his queen with 17...Qd7. White should just capture on e7.} 17... Qa6 18. Rxe7+ Kf8 19. Qd5 Qc4 20. Rxf7+ Kg8 21. Rf8# 1-0
