  hesyrett: I find this game more impressive than Anderssen's so-called "Immortal Game", which was highly speculative.  His tactics here are rock-solid, fully justifying his sac of the P on c6.  11...Qb5 is especially nice, coming just when you expect him to move his QB.  Anderssen saw that, two moves later, White's KR would be guarded only by his K, which could be deflected by ...Bxh2+.
