Mar-11-03  drukenknight: here is my favorite fork in the philidor, there are lots of ways to play whites 11th, here white says "I have no idea which piece to save, you pick. "

if 11...pxB then material is equal and either side can be creative. if 11...pxN then black is ahead in material and white should attack.

Neither move is wrong, the game should be able to be held.

The notes say 13...BxNf5? was a mistake.
