    A picture of Paul Morphy in a ‘B’ Movie Horror flick.

    I stumble across Paul Morphy’s marriage certificate.

    This leads to a Paul Morphy game which in turn takes
    us to a classic Tal v Petrosian game inspired by Morphy.
    In between those two I manage to sneak in one of my games.

    Next an interesting and instructive game played on
    here a few weeks ago by a couple of 1800 RHP lads.

    The Hall of Doom makes a return.

    Just guessing here, but this may have something to do with how show business prefers to portray chess players, which is usually socially dysfunctional neurotics, obsessed with a complicated board game. Though this image may contain a grain of truth, it's hardly the whole story. Oh well, I guess we can live with a wee bit of negative imagery.
