  wwall: Looks like the losing move was 21...Be5? (perhaps 21...Rf8), allowing 22.f6! If 22...gxf6 (22...Bxf6?? 23. Rxe8+, then 23.Nf5 (threatening 24.Qg4 and mate next move) 23...Qf8 24.Bxe5 fxe5 (or 24...Rxe5, transposing) 25.Qg3+ Kh8 26.Rxe5 27.Qxe5+ f6 28.Qxc7 Ra7 (28...Bc8 29.Qxa5) 29.Re1, which should easily win for White. If 22.f6 g6, then 23.Qe3 Qxf6 24.Bxe5 Qh4 (24...Rxe5 25.Qxe5) 25.Qd2 (threatening 26.Bxc7) Rc8 26.c4, winning for White.

  keypusher: 24....Qh8 was a blunder that gave Anderssen first prize over Paulsen in the tournament. Instead 24....Qg6 would have kept Black alive, since after 25.Bxe5 f6, White canít play Qh5 as in the game. Offrampís 24.Rxe5 Rxe5 25.f4 is the right way to exploit the pin.

Iíve read that Anderssen cheerfully tossed Blackís knight over his shoulder after capturing it. Paulsenís reaction is unrecorded.
