Kibitzer's Corner
May-10-05  vinohradska: I am wondering why he played 24.Rf4? What is he threatening with that? I see other more obvious moves.

  TheAlchemist: <vinohradska> His threat was to double on the h-file and sacrifice a rook on h6. So, let's say black just stands by with something like 24...a5 25.Rh4 a4 26.Rxh6 gxh6 27.Rxh6 Kg7 28.Nf5 mate. However, I think 24.Ng6 was certainly stronger. But you know good old Adolf, he can't help himself but to sacrifice :)
May-10-05  vinohradska: Yes, 24.Ng6 was my idea. I suppose it mostly won by 21 anyway.

  Eggman: I'm at a loss to understand why Black didn't play 6...♕g5 or why Anderssen would allow such a move.
Sep-26-08  I Offer You A Resign: I normally wouldn't like my rook all the way up there, but the way Adolf Anderssen played it was win.
