|Jun-17-03|| ||Kenkaku: This game should be entered as Wilhelm Steinitz, bringing even more parity between these two players' records vs. each other. |
|Jun-17-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: Chessgames.com, this game was not played in 1882, but in 1862. By the way Anderssen died in 1878. |

6...Nb8?!; 6... Nd6!;
10... c6?!; 10... Bd7!;
21. Nxe7? Rb5!!; 21. Kh1!
22. f4 Kf8! 23. f5 Rxe7 24. Qh6 Kg8 25. Qxf6 Rxe1 26. Rxe1 Rxf5 27. Re7 Qd8! with chances for both players.

|Feb-24-05|| ||RookFile: I think Anderssen showed some nice
|Feb-28-05|| ||malbase: This game is in Lasker's Manual of Chess.
Black had an edge up to move 26. Black blundered with 26 -;Qf5?
By exchanging Queens Black was left with weak pawns.
This game was a learning experience for Steinitz. Patience is required in playing chess.

|Jan-30-12|| ||Knight13: 32...Rxg3 33. hxg3 f5 is better for Black than the line Stenitz chose, which completely locks his king up in a hopeless position to contribute anything.|
|Sep-26-12|| ||Naniwazu: Better than 16. dxc6 was Nxb5! the point of which is after 16...cxb5 17. Qxb5 Rf8 18. Qb7 White forks Black's Rook and Bishop and the only way to defend is to relinquish the Knight with Nd7 or Na6.|
|Jan-05-15|| ||poorthylacine: Anderssen played the first part of the game in a splendid way, and got a winning position at the 20th move, but he fell then in the ingenious defensive trap of Steinitz (20...Kg7!), which he did certainly not expect; after 21.Kh1! Black was still lost...
But later Steinitz missed an opportunity to exchange the queens (at the 26th move); his blunder of the 35th move hastened an end which anyway was no more to avoid.|
(Analysis of G. Barcza)
|Apr-01-15|| ||Ziryab: This game is remarkable. Steinitz defended well after getting a passive position from the opening. He could have maintained an even game with 26...Qb7 instead of going into a rook ending with such awful pawns. Even then, Anderssen showed some fine technique to bring home the win.|
J. Lowenthal points out 21.Kh1! in the tournament book.
|Feb-03-18|| ||Nerwal: Anderssen's 13. gxf3!? is a very interesting and creative choice. However the positional 13. ♕xf3 is probably not worse.|
Steinitz did not defend well but the position was unpleasant and after 14... b5? already beyond repair.
21. ♘xe7? ♖b5!! is a devilish trap and the star move of the game by Steinitz.
Then when Black has saved the game and got an equal endgame it is quite a surprise to see Anderssen playing the rook endgame this well and Steinitz this badly.
