Antoshin diagram

White to play.
I have posted some notes on my favorite Anti-Antoshin line, which I played in a recent ICC game. The more standard Anti-Antoshin approach to the Philidor Defense with Bf4, Qd2, and queenside castling, followed by throwing all your kingside pawns forward (as first demonstrated in Kashdan-Koltanowski, London 1932) is not possible when White is committed to Bc4 (as in the Urusov Gambit move order that I favor). In my line, White still throws all his kingside pawns forward, it's just that he has castled kingside! It makes for an interesting game....
