This is the story of the birth of modern chess - when the possibilities of chess as an art, a science and a sport all converged.
The point of convergence was a young boy from Louisiana named Paul Morphy. At a time when America was seen as a backwoods nation with little cultural history and even less intellectual impetus, at a time when chess was considered the exclusive property of a few European countries, at a time when the game was played successfully by a handful of men wizened by years, Paul Morphy, in the brief span of 19 months and with seemingly little effort, defeated conclusively every player he met.
While today few non chess players even know his name, he was one of the most famous celebrities of his time and within the hallowed halls of the chess playing community he is considered by some as the greatest chess player of all time.
But this diminutive, unassuming boy rose to fame almost out of nowhere and once he secured his place in history, he retired back into that hazy unknown, shunning the public eye, never again to play serious chess. Not only was he one of great practitioners of the game, but also one of it's greatest enigmas. He's been given the sobriquet, The Pride and Sorrow of Chess.

  • King morphy👑

  • Wouldn't it be fun if you did a blindfold game stream! Against anyone you choose. 🤔

  • Johann Jacob Lowenthal won the game!

  • outsanding move. agadmator knows his memes.

  • When this game was played it took 1 week to travel from New Orleans (Morphy's home town) to NYC and then 6 weeks to cross the Atlantic to London. Pretty nuts.

  • Now that 'The Queen's Gambit' came out and is popular worldwide, maybe we'll get more cool chess related movies/shows. I'd love to see a mini series based on Morphy's life.

  • At the end of the game...i know it doesn't actually help but f7p to f6 to protect the queen...ugh i love chess but im not great. Why does this end game get crushed? (ugh you played it out...why doesn't protecting the black queen right away and forcing white to make the next move...whats the next move.)

  • Good for Johann...tough to beat old Morphy. He is sneaky...

  • Staunton summoned Lowenthal Lowenthal used salt

  • It’s like Die Hard 4 - just goes on and on and on...

  • Morphy has looked somewhat mortal in the last few games.

  • This was the fastest time I ever spotted the pause the video moment. The queen pin was surely visible

  • Greatest Chess Players Ranking senewss.info/slow/aNC-n9Vnr93botQ/video

  • Thanks for showing a Morphy loss. There weren’t many of them. So many parallels to Fischer.

  • To defeat was a Himalayan Task. We have to give a good applause to Loventhal

  • Is the game over because the player made what is considered an illegal move and place themselves into checj

  • Question if an opponent king is under pressure and the player moves his king into check or move a piece that blocks an attack that places the king in check is the game over

  • for we all need Jesus, all sin and fall short of The glory of God and the wages of sin is death. the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord, for Jesus died on the cross and rose again and by His blood our sins are forgiven. there is no other way than Jesus for He is The Way The Truth The Life and no one comes to The Father except through Him. for it is by declaring with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believing in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you are saved see romans 10:9-13, i encourage you to read your Bible and invite The Holy Spirit to guide your mind as you read, john romans psalms luke and mark are good places to start. God bless God Jesus The Holy Spirit love you and be with you forevermore in Jesus Name we pray amen :) only One God our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ i am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. galatians 2:20 in Jesus Name we pray amen, pray for the peace of israel pray for those who are persucated for righteousness sake for their is the kingdom of heaven see matthew 5:10 pray for the brethren pray for me in all things praying for you in Jesus Name we pray amen may you believe in Jesus and be saved in Jesus Name we pray amen i encourage you to repent of your sins turn from them and come to believe in Jesus for it is by declaring with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believing in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you are saved and all who truly put their trust in Him will never be put to shame in Jesus Name we pray amen in Jesus Name we pray amen (see romans 10-11) for the kingdom of heaven is at hand, no one is promised tomorrow and Jesus alone saves all in Jesus Name we pray amen God bless God Jesus The Holy Spirit love you and be with you forevermore praying for you pray for me in all things through trials and temptations and sin and to be more Christ like everyday for Jesus is perfect and the same always in Jesus Name we pray amen Jesus loves us all and died and rose again to save us all for by His blood our sins are forgiven, it is God's gift to us to be saved for we do not deserve it and we can not earn it but when we believe in Jesus we are saved and have passed over from death to life with God and Jesus forevermore in Jesus Name hey only God Jesus The Holy Spirit are perfect and only One God our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and we can be made righteous when we come to Jesus for while we have sinned and fall short of The glory of God Jesus The Holy Spirit but when we believe in Jesus and come to Him our sins are forgiven and we can turn from sin and wickedness and live a life worthy to Jesus in Jesus Name we pray amen Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? 7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? micah 6:6-8 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. john 14:6-7 do not use The Lord's Name in vain instead honor God love God with all heart soul and mind and love your neighbor as yourself, believe in The One God has sent Jesus Christ for this is The Work of God in Jesus Name we pray amen That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. romans 10:9-13 only God Jesus The Holy Spirit are perfect and when we come to Jesus we can be saved for by His blood our sins are forgiven and when we believe we are saved, i encourage you to read your Bible for it alone is God's Word for us and invite The Holy Spirit into your life for it is God's Word and Spirit that give light and life to all for Jesus is The Living Word and all who believe in Jesus are saved and have passed over from death to life. they re no longer separated from God for eternity but have life and peace with God and Jesus forevermore, instead of being condemned to the lake of fire we have life in the new heaven the new earth and the new jerusalem where there is no more death or mourning or sorrow or crying or pain or sin for Jesus bore them all on the cross taking them away forevermore and when we truly believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior we are saved in Jesus Name we pray amen come into The Kingdom of Light accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior today amen amen For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son john 3:16-18 come to know Jesus today He died on the cross for our sins and rose again, so we can live with Him forever because He loves us, by His blood He has victory over sin, death and hell amen. God Jesus The Holy Spirit love you and be with you forevermore amen God bless amen :) :)

  • I solved the not real pause the video moment!

  • "You can safely resign"

  • 3:06 Staunton?

  • another type of game as in slaying a giant is Reshevsky vs. Capablanca, 1935

  • This video ends in 1093 seconds!

  • This shit is like crack for some people in the comments. Big respect to all the chess headz hustling out there hahah

  • Shouldn't the phrase be, "and here we have a completely new game, that has never been reached again."?

  • This video ends in 1094 seconds!

  • Qc3 gains the knight and the game is basically over

  • RE: the next part of the saga, Morphy needs his 8 gym badges before he can take on the Elite rival

  • Love this game! Finally got a spot the move correct!

  • Hi I'm writing this comment on behalf of all the people in your telegram group. We need a moderator, unfortunately it seems impossible to get in touch with you there so i need to write this request on the youtube comment section. Lately we have experienced issues with a couple of trolls and people who pretended to be IMs selling courses, so now the group (which still counts about 500 people) is dying and everyone has stopped writing (except for a troll who everyday sends pictures of naked asian girls -.- ) So please, could you open telegram just once and and make a couple of people admins of the chat? This way we could at least remove those trolls and maybe bring back a good chess-themed group (sorry if there are some mistakes but i'm not a native english speaker)

  • Who else watches agad's videos on 2x or 1.5 x speed.

  • Can you remake the ron weasly game in 1080p?

  • We need an admin on the telegram group

  • Staunton ?!?

  • I am Anxiety. .

  • "I'll try the Morphy defense, that's a good trick."- Morphy

  • "Staunton's minions" lol. I bet the boy Barnes didn't think of himself that way.

  • 3:08 is he playing staunton or löwenthal now?

  • Barnes: Hello everyone! Owens: captures, captures Löwenthal: :D

  • Lowenthal's reply is just myself 😆😆😆 #SourGrapeCase

  • I mean you could say that Löwenthal's judgement was impaired at times. The Queen to H8 move in the previous game hinted that Löwenthal wasn't playing his best chess, especially since he basically set up an immortal just a few games before that. My diagnosis: mercury poisoning impairing his judgement. A very common ailment during that time period.

  • 12:55 I wasnt simple enough.. Was thinking Queen C3 first..

  • this was played in 1859 in london agad not in 1858

  • Agadmator if possible please try botvinik Vs tigran Petrosian 1963 chess championship.A suggestion to your next saga

  • #suggestion Karjakin vs Samy Shoker (2016) : chess24.com/en/watch/live-tournaments/eurasian-blitz-chess-cup-2016/8/1/6 amazing attack by black with a crazy rook against world champion

  • löwenthal was salty back in 1858 it really sounds like your average aggressive online player you only won cuz im chilling

  • Wow I found the move!!

  • i get hungry when i watch agadmator i conditioned myself because i always put on some agadmator when im eating

  • Morphy is the best 😀😀😀

  • Plz start Botvinik saga also

  • Banana

  • Saying "I played lesser moves because I didn't expect this or that" could work it it had been 1 game, but as he was getting destroyed all over the series; He should've stopped playing 'lesser moves', but he didn't. These 'lesser moves' were the best he got.

  • Agadmator: Congratulations to everyone if you played any move........(I was expecting "other than what Lowenthal played") Me: Here comes the worst move in the position again Me: Disappointed

  • Lowenthal gets a Morphy head :D

  • Antonio, just wanted to let you know, I had a very stressful day today. But when I heard your calm voice in the evening, I instantly felt better. Keep up the great work!

  • 3:10 Howard Staunton?

  • At 13:56 in move 38 if black goes Kf6 instead of directly capturing white Queen, then if black queen captures white queen, after black Ke5 captures, it's much closer to b2 pawn and white king won't be able to prevent it winning that pawn. Isn't that enough to take away white's advantage?

  • Dude use a new thumbnail

  • Lowenthal sounds like a very sad sportsman if he can only make excuses for his losses. Too funny.

  • think its the first time morphy plays morphy defence, at least in this saga. i remember thinking "how come they call it morphy defence if he never plays it"

  • Morphy doesn't seem like he's all that good.

  • "Accept he must, but play, will he?" As Yoda-esque as one could ever hope for, F.M. Edge's words are.

  • Löwenthal's attitude is because he was a son of a merchant.

  • Löwenthal did fairly well. Beating Morphy 3 times is still an accomplishment. Sad to hear he was a bad sport about it. I look forward to more Morphy saga!

  • I like the Morphy saga. It’s what got me interested in your channel. Thank you.

  • Lowenthal: You only win because I play bad moves. Morphy: Rude!

  • Is F.M. Edge the inspiration for Yoda? lol. Also it's clear Lowenthal is the best of all time. The only reason for any of his losses is that he didn't play the best moves possible.

  • This was really enjoyable, I love those old games!

  • I assume in the next match Morphy will be flipping the bird.

  • Staunton? 😀

  • Lets hope lowenthal wins this one ☺🐰👍

  • mr agad are you bullish on bitcoin? Wondering if you kept the 1 BTC donation that you received or if you sold it that day :D

  • Three wins against Morphy - probably the most talented chess master to ever play the game? Pretty darn good. But, of course, Lowenthal has to be Lowenthal, and not be a gentlemen in accepting defeat. I recently gave rook odds to a friend of mine, who plays pretty well, and it was a heck of a battle. Similar to this game, it came down to a passed pawn of mine that won the game. I congratulated my friend a a game very well played. He is just a novice, but played a wonderful game - an epic battle, and we enjoyed every minute of it. Our friendly wager of "loser buys lunch" was won by my friend. Even though he technically lost the game, he played far beyond his novice skills, and that is a clear victory.

  • Thank God for the good stuff

  • Was Staunton even a chess player?

  • 05:14 sac the queen if pawn C4. Grab a rook and a knight for the queen and enjoy your position. If white is not carefull F6 with the bishop can be very strong.

  • #suggestion Nikolic vs Mamedyarov 2005 That is legendary game by Mamedyarov.

  • Wow...thank you Agadmatto...this was sweet

  • i feel watching you narrate you paint a picture and i imagine each game is a different story being told. No two games feel exactly the same

  • I mean yes. Lowenthal lost because of his oversights, but a game ends in checkmate. Playing half a good game is worthless if you throw it into the trash in the other half. Unlike Lowenthal, when Morphy played half a good game, generally, he played half another good game immediately afterwards. That's why Morphy is better. I mean, losing that g6 pawn, really? Really Lowenthal????

  • "Accept, he must. But play, will he?" - Yoda

  • Soar loser, our Johann........

  • Ugh! Terrible longish ads.

  • Great Morphy chapter, Agadmator. Thanks.

  • The only reason Morphy lost , was Lowenthal had a forced game. It happens.

  • Your in-depth analysis on Nxe4 is always helping understanding how far ahead you have to visualize in a game to become better.

  • Lowentell is a soar looser

  • Morphy goes for Morphy's defense" imagine that. Lol, I'm dying.

  • A time traveler bringing these two to 2020 to watch Antonio show their game would be epic! Hey dudes, this magic box shows a Croatian guy describe your game 150 years later to an audience of possibly half a million. We have machines that can beat every human on the planet, but we still want to see your games from the early days. Respect!

  • I wish this saga would never end.

  • Staunton played on Lowenthal's team? Or was he just an advisor?

    • 3:05 "Let's see how Staunton deals with it."

  • all good things must come to an end

  • 3:04 Lowental Becomes Howard Staunton (Mouth Slip)

  • senewss.info/slow/bZPdgcSHfNKVrLY/video: Lowenthal morphs into Staunton

  • I love your Saga

  • Imagine Morphy with a Chess engine?

  • A Tal Game for 800K Subscibers Please😢😢

  • whenever you say that this position has never been reached again, I know it means that this game was played a while ago, but how long ago? how many years does it have to be for you to say "never reached again" or "completely new game"?

    • ? Its a statement about the past no the future. Nothing is stopping this position from reoccurring just that to date it hasn't happened.

  • I found Qe4???

  • Lowenthal was right, in a way. We only lose because of stupid bad moves.
