Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-04-05  Mate Hunter: Why didn't Anderssen play 16...Bd7 to prevent 17.Qb5+ instead of 16...Bg8?
Jan-28-08  just a kid: Black could have resigned on move 28.
Sep-06-10  muwatalli: <just a kid
Black could have resigned on move 28.>

i suppose he could have, but it would have been extremely premature, since black had a perfectly playable endgame with 2 pieces for a rook and 2 pawns, and white has no immediate threats or even a single passed pawn. black's mistakes on moves 36 and 37 cost him the game however. 36...Nxe5 and there is no win in site for white.

Apr-25-18  Chessist: Published in CPC Vol. VI (1845), page 239, the game is misdated here.

Chessist is right - the game was played in Leipzig on the 15th of April 1845 - Source: JWD.


Apr-26-18  Nosnibor: Both of these players were born in 1818 and also the strongest two in Germany at the time.

<...and also the strongest two in Germany at the time.>

Not really, Anderssen wasn't in 1845 under the german top five players...
