  Knight13: White pushes the kingside pawns, weakening his the king drastically. Black places his pieces in a suitable position to kill the white king, then blows up the center and goes in for the kill.

This game can be summarized as this: White was just making a bunch of moves with a bad plan while Black was preparing to exploit the bad plan with a good plan.

  zanzibar: <CG> previously had Black playing 25...Rxb2 vs. the current 25...Re4.

In fact, only <CG> and <Z-base> have the correct 25...Re4.

The TB notes this about 25...Re4‡

‡The correct move. White is now bereft of nearly all resource.

Sep-14-16  yureesystem: I like the way Anderssen plays, maybe some of Paulsen's ideas in the Sicilian came from Anderssen. On move 28.Kd1, what happens if White play 28.Rf2, well Anderssen has a nice finish, 28...Rxe2+ 29.Kxe2 Ba6+ 30.Ke1 Qe3+ 31.Kd1 Qxf2 wins a piece and easy won game.
