Handicaps were quite popular in the 18th and 19th centuries when chess was often played for money stakes in order to induce weaker players to play for wagers. Odds-giving reached its heyday in the eighteenth century and the early nineteenth century. About fifteen percent of the known games of Paul Morphy (1837–1884) are games in which he gave odds.
