  fredthebear: The (Bernhard) Horwitz Bishops strike again! White's last move is an impressive dual-purpose retreat.

If instead, 35.Qb2 Kg7 adds a defender to the pinned Black bishop. However, 35...Kg7 won't help in the game's actual continuation.

  fredthebear: More about Bernhard Horwitz...

Chess author Bill Wall shares a few historical facts and an instructive miniature from 1846 by Bernhard Horwitz playing the Black pieces against Howard Staunton.

(This 1846 brevity is an example of an absolute pin by the Black bishop upon the White rook and king, not raking bishops. The possibility is somewhat common, so recognition is vital. White failed to develop his last bishop off the back rank, rendering his cornered rook useless.)

Thank you Bill Wall and <ChessCoachClark>!!
