  fredthebear: A fine mating net! The "Horwitz Bishops" are devastating. Black has four central pawns and all get removed (had the game actually played out to checkmate).

If the Black pawn had accepted the rook sacrifice in the final position 26...fxRe5, Morphy's Mate occurs (mate with the bishop on the long diagonal) 27.Bxe5+ Bf6 28.BxBf6#. If Black saves the unprotected light squared bishop instead 26...Bd5 various, comes another sacrifice 27.RxBe7 and Morphy's Mate is set-up. (Yes, 27...Rf8 is one possible harmless squawk, declining White's rook sacrifice again.)

Earlier, Black could have captured the mating bishop 18...exBd4. White then makes use of the rook lift 19.Rd3 to support the queen on the flank after Rg3+ and Rh3.

Historical Profile:
