Jan-09-05  oxxo: I love this game.. Probably it's somewhat lame by today's standards, and not as spectecular and short as Morphy/Allies, but I think it's another cute gem.

  GrahamClayton: A real long distance mate, with the two pieces forcing the checkmate being on White's first and second ranks respectively.

  fredthebear: The discovered double check sacrifice is a feature of Pillsbury's Mate with the second rook. (Morphy's Mate is check by the bishop.)

It's interesting that Anderssen did this decades before Pillsbury.
