    Roy Jean Noel Phillips is definitely a name to remember!

    A similar mating motif; Caruana - Ponomariov, Dortmund 2014. Watch for the bombshell on move 39.

    That's' good moonbus, I'll see if I can find a RHP game with that idea.

    Not among my games, you won't; I have a ways to go to catch up w/Fabio.

    There are quite a few, though with this pattern.

    Most are getting mated on b2, g2, b7 and g7.

    This one has the theme. I like White's attitude. he wrecks his pawns
    to get an open file should Black 0-0. So Black 0-0-0.
    White goes for him on the Queenside.
