Sage Mode Chess - Paul Morphy 3

Sage Mode Chess continues with the story of genius - Paul Morphy.
After receiving his degree in 1857, Morphy was not yet of legal age to practice law and found himself with free time. He received an invitation to play at the First American Chess Congress in New York City and, at his uncle's urging, accepted. Morphy won the tournament which included strong players of the day, such as Alexander Meek and Louis Paulsen.
I've already shown one of the games he played against Paulsen in a previous post here at Sage Mode Chess. Today I'll be showing you another one.
P.S: The annotation on the last move is not mine
Enjoy it my friends

Sage Mode Chess - Paul Morphy 2

Today, Sage Mode Chess continues with genius Paul Morphy.
A brief history; Paul Morphy was born June 22, 1837 in New Orleans to lawyer and judge Alonzo Morphy. When he was only 12 he played against Johann Jacob Loewenthal and beat him 2½ to ½. 
I present here a third Paul Morphy game on this blog.
Enjoy people
