Mating patterns in 5-min-games (9) - Black attacked the Ruy Lopez following Dubois-Steinitz

This is a nice mating pattern. Let's call it pin and mate. My opponent played a nice attack against my castled king following a famous game often attributed to Steinitz with the black pieces against Dubois. First my loss.

The cited game  is interesting for learning players. I'm sure if you search batgirl's blog you will find a good article with at least a note about it. The link http://www.chesshistory.com/winter/extra/confusion.html leads to the great blog of Edward Winter with remarks to that and similar games. You'll find easily comments here on chess.com and other sites from better players to what's passed on as played by Dubois and Steinitz. That's why I give only the moves.

Have fun!
