  john barleycorn: When Morphy was shown this game, he said:
"You can see the hand of a master".
Apr-15-14  LIFE Master AJ: (Source?)

If Morphy really said that, I would have to agree completely ...

IMO - the two greatest <purely> tactical players of all time were Adolf Anderssen and Mikhail Tal.

  john barleycorn: <offramp> is "One can see the hand of a master" correct? However there was no hand I guess. Literally.

  offramp: Correct is "Talk to the hand! Of a master lol! Face palm lol!"
Apr-22-14  LIFE Master AJ: I really appreciate the intelligent comments/commentators on this site ...

it's a pity we also have to put up with the trolls as well.

Apr-22-14  N0B0DY: <Talk to the hand!> What is the sound of one hand clapping?

  perfidious: <N0B0DY> There are posters here such as <Conrad>, <ughhaibu>, <AJ> and <pipi> whom you might ask about that-it's the only way they get there.

May-01-15  ToTheDeath: This game holds up and is still awesome even by today's standards. Unlike his "Immortal" game, this one has less mistakes and better play by both sides. Black was threatening mate on the move which makes the combination extra nice.

Apr-19-16  Solomon2003: there are many games study everyday but this is the best game to study because there is nothing to study
Jul-05-16  dernier loup de T: Very intelligent and amusing "Reti's parrot-comment", Solomon2003; half joking but I am fairly tired to see comments like this one...
Jul-20-16  The Kings Domain: Brilliant game by Anderssen. Truly an Evergreen; there's just something refreshing about playing and admiring the marvelous combination the great professor seamlessly executes here.

  thegoodanarchist: Look at how quickly these ancient masters developed their pieces! By move 14, ALL pieces except Black's king rook have been developed.

Of course, White's queen's rook was developed only by connection, but still....

Aug-22-17  DraganChase: Hey... I have a question, on move 22, why did king black go e8,and not c6 instead?

  tpstar: If 22 ... Kc6 then 23. Bd7#:

A great way to learn and improve is by reading each game's kibitzing from the top. This is a flawed brilliancy, primarily due to 19 ... Qh3.

<COMPUTER ANNOTATED SCORE> Nice enhancement.

Aug-28-17  DraganChase: Oh, wow... Didn't see that one. Thanks.

That 19. ... Qh3 was the fatal misstep.

  Big Pawn: I loaded this game up and let stockfish 8 have a look at it. At depth = 48, it gives as the best line:

19...Bd4
20. cxd4 Qxf3

and it's a dead draw at 0.00. (Komodo 10 and Fritz 15 give 19...Qh3 20. Bf1 Qf5 as a dead draw too at 0.00.)

After 20...Qxf3

21. Be4 Rxg2+
22. Kh1 Rxh2+
23. Kxh2 Qxf2+
24. Kh1 Qh4+
25. Kg1 Qg3+

And it is a perpetual check.

  Big Pawn: In light of the 19...Bd4! best defense, which ends with a perpetual, the best move for white is not 19. Rad1, but 19.Be4!

Stockfish 8 (depth = 46) plus Komodo and Fritz all give 19. Be4 as best with a slight advantage to white of around +0.35.

Best:

19. Be4 Qh3
20. g3 Rxg3+

Interesting sac.

21. hg Qxg3+
22. Kh1 Bxf2
23. Bxe7 Qh3+
24. Nh2 Bxe1
25. Rxe1

and it's white's slight advantage at about ⩲ 0.39

The line continues

25...Qh4
26. Qd1 Nxe7
27. Bxb7 Qxf6
28. Bg2

White has a small plus, but it's not so clear he can win with only two pawns left.

28...Rb2
29. Qd3

And there's still plenty of interesting game left to play.
