  tpstar: White has 3 mate threats = 24. Nf6#, 24. Nxc7# plus 24. Re7+! & 25. Rxe7# like you said. 23 ... Rc8 loses to 24. Nf6+ Kd8 25. Rd7+! Nxd7 26. Rxd7#, while 23 ... Rd7 loses a piece to 24. Nf6+.
Sep-18-04  Giancarlo: hmmm, it'd be intresting to see Phillidor and Morphy play. Two old school guys with 80% winning and noth top at there times.
Sep-29-04  morphy234: hmm... I'd put my money on Philidor if he played Morphy.
Apr-16-06  MorphyMatt: <morphy234> no way
Nov-08-08  sirfraix: 19... Ng5 20. hxg5 Kxg7 21. g6, and we have the typical passed pawns phalanx that we see in other Philidor games, the f pawn will fall in this variation. I think Philidor tactical strenght is equivalent to a 2300 fide rated player of our days.
Feb-28-09  WhiteRook48: an original attack
