[Event "New York"] [Site "?"] [Round "0"] [White "Schulten"] [Black "Morphy"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "C31"] [Opening "KGD: Falkbeer, 3.exd5 e4"] 1. e4 e5 2. f4 d5 3. exd5 e4 4. Nc3 Nf6 5. d3 Bb4 6. Bd2 { This breaks the pin on the Nc3, but Black can reinstate it.} 6... e3 { It is worth a pawn to deflect the bishop from its defensive duties.} 7. Bxe3 O-O 8. Bd2 Bxc3 9. bxc3 Re8+ 10. Be2 {White has two extra pawns, but the pawn structure is a mess and the bishops have no scope. Black now uses the pin on the d- file to add more pressure.} 10... Bg4 11. c4 c6 12. dxc6 Nxc6 { Black's superior development gives him a clear advantage.} 13. Kf1 {White has n ow abandoned the notion of ever castling. Black's would like to keep the pressure on, and invests the exchange to do so.} 13... Rxe2 14. Nxe2 { The knight is now pinned to the queen, and it is easy to pile on more pressure which results in a quick kill.} 14... Nd4 15. Qb1 Bxe2+ 16. Kf2 Ng4+ 17. Kg1 { White's position is so pathetic that the king is nearly checkmated by the minor pieces alone. But to add insult to injury, Morphy finishes with a fine combination by sacrificing a piece.} 17... Nf3+ 18. gxf3 Qd4+ 19. Kg2 Qf2+ 20. Kh3 Qxf3+ 21. Kh4 {Black resigned without waiting for 21...Nh6, which would be followed by checkmate.} 0-1
