|Oct-03-04|| ||Kean: A pretty game, but I would like to know if this wasnt a prepared variation by Anderssen. After 8..d5, he paralizes blacks game with 9.Bb5 and 10.Ba3, but I guess what comes later only increases this, by 14.Qxd5, after Mayet had bitten the bait of the exchange, it becomes a forced variation! 15.e6 and all is pinned.
The funny thing about the queens rook, Mayet moves it to b8 to protect it but later when the white queen is in d6 it was took anyway. |
|Oct-03-04|| ||sneaky pete: <Kean> Certainly not prepared. This was a casual game and it's a typical Anderssen combination: daring, imaginative, large scale and unsound. After 12... Qd7 instead of 12... bxc6?? black should win.|
Anderssen played more careful 10... Bd7 in this line in Dufresne vs Adolf Anderssen, 1851 and won, so 9.Bb5 .. with 10.Ba3 .. isn't so deadly here.
|Oct-03-04|| ||Kean: You are right sneaky pete, after 12.. Qd7 black gets a rook and 2 pawns for the bishop, tough his position would be bad for some time, and maybe Anderssen have considered that, being this a casual game.
I have seen the second game, it seems to me that Mayet was still more unsound that Anderssen! 12..c5 was a good freeing move by A. Soon Im gonna start to analyze the games of that time and I think a perfect player would be Anderssen for he had a long chess career and his daring style. |
|Oct-23-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: Compare: Steinitz vs E Pilhal, 1862.|
Steinitz's <8. Ba3!> is even stronger than Anderssen's <8. e5?!>. Nevertheless, a fine game by Anderssen!

In <Improve Your Chess / by learning from the champions>, by Hansen, Lars Bo, Gambit Publications Ltd. ©2009, at page 16, GM Hansen gives this analysis: “<12. … Qd7> is refuted by a spectacular and beautiful line, in the spirit of the Romantic Era: <13. Qc2! a6> (13. … Bxe5 14. Nxa7) <14. Nb8!! Qxb5 15. Qxc7 Bd7 16. Rc1, threatening Qc8+>.”
