In 1857, a soft-spoken genius from New Orleans burst upon the chess scene. Paul Morphy dazzled the chess world with breathtaking combinations seemingly arising out of thin air. In his brief chess career, he was universally recognized as the best in the world.
In Paul Morphy: A Modern Perspective, international grandmaster Valeri Beim takes a close look at the play of the mid-19th century champion, putting his games under a modern, 21st-century analytical microscope.
The result is a fresh and instructive look at the strategy and tactics of the American legend, and their relevance to the modern approach to the royal game.
Valeri Beim, is an international grandmaster now residing in Vienna. He is a respected chess instructor and author; this is his fifth chess book.
