Morphy's Mate

About this game: Morphy's Mate is a checkmate pattern named after American master Paul Morphy. It uses a bishop and rook together to trap the enemy king in a manner similar to Pillsbury's Mate. How these two patterns are distinguished is not clear. It works by using the bishop to attack the black king and a rook and Black's own pawn to confine it.
