    It's funny, I just studied this position.  It's from Morphy's Opera Box game.

    This is hilarious, GM Becerra just wrote an article about this specific tactic as seen in Paul Morphy's game vs. Carl Isouard

    Weirdly enough, I saw it, but didn't realise until afterwards that it was this game. These two moves were easy enough to figure out, but the ones just before were pretty much genius, and I doubt I would have had a chance of calculating that far ahead.

    I was considering another tactic until I recognised what game it was from. Smile

    Well the main path is clearly best as it's forced.  Still, can black recover from rxn?  Black threatens mate (Rd8 or Qb8).

    Looks like after Rxd7 Kxd7 is winning for black, but as Bruce Pandolfini will tell you <<Morphy didn't want to play a long drawn out game with complications, so he went for the most accurate win so that he could get back his Opera>> :)
