I played a blitz game – http://ficsgames.com/cgi-bin/show.cgi?ID=255740432;action=show and I decided to devote it (if you will see the final you will understand why) to one the greatest chess geniuses of all time, Paul Morphy. His games were one of the reasons I started to study and play chess seriously and they influenced my style of play. I will start from the position after 27. Bf2:

So 27… Rxf3! ( of course, you can’t take the rook because of the fork), 28. Rxe8+ Qxe8 29. Qg5? – a mistake, 29… Qe1+! :

30. Bxe1 Rf1#:

As you can see,  the final reminds of his most famous game.
