  Honza Cervenka: 27...Kh8 was a blunder. After 27...Kf7 28.Nxh7 Rg8 the position seems to be roughly equal. Instead of 19.Rxf7+ white could play 19.Rxg4 Qxg4 20.Nxc7 and 21.Nxa8.
Feb-01-03  mineralfellow: 19. Rxf7+!

Games like this are just fun.

Feb-02-03  Kenneth Sterling: That which separates these two men most profoundly is a different sense and grade of purity. What does it matter about all their talent and opening knowledge, what does it matter about all their wins and failures! Anderssen possessed the highest instinct for purity which placed him in the most extraordinary and dangerous isolation, as a saint: for it is just holiness--the highest spiritualization of the instinct in question. Any kind of cognizance of an indescribable excess in the joy of the game, any kind of ardour or thirst which perpetually impels the soul out of night into the morning, and out of gloom, out of "affliction" into clearness, brightness, depth, and refinement:--just as much as such a tendency DISTINGUISHES--it is a noble tendency--it also SEPARATES.
Sep-18-04  Knight13: 28... Rf8? Not a good move. I would played 28... Kf8 instead. I'll study this game.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Actually, 27...Kg7 looks very bad to me. Was this the best move? I'm looking at ...Ke7 and ...Nd5 as alternatives.
