Beans that make you play great chess.

A review of 'Norma' the opera Morphy was watching (listening too)
when he played against the Allies in Paris in 1858.

Some lines to try v the Phiidor and The Hall of Doom.

OK, at the risk of making a complete di** of myself - why not put the King in check straight away with the Rook in the study by L.Topcejev 1927?

That study from 1927 was stalemate if white tried to get the rook immediately too, R-g7+, KxN e8, RXR stalemate.
