  offramp: The absolute critical moment in this game is after 24.Ne4.

Anderssen played what looks like a good move: 24...Bd5 threatens to take the knight that protects the crucial f2. However, the move allows a not-too-hard-to-see mate in 5! 24...Nxf2+ is a good move, and should win, but Anderssen missed a VERY good move in 24...Qg5!

exploiting the fact that the ♘ on e4 cannot move.
25.Re2 looks forced and then 25...Rh2+ 26.Kg1 Qg6! 27.Nc5+ Ke7 28.Qh4+ Nf6+ 29.Qg3 Qxg3+ wins for black - long but more or less forced.
