  keypusher: What about 29...♕c6 30 ♖f7+ ♔h8 31 ♖bxb7 and if 31...♕xc4 32 ♖f8+? Doesn't that work for white?
Mar-17-06  who: 26...Bxh2+ is a nice little trap. 27.Kxh2? Qxd7 28.Rxf8 Qd6+
Apr-29-10  ariel el luchador: un excelente juego de Anderssen lo supero a Steinitz tanto posicionalmente como en combinación de jugadas pero principalmente en el aspecto posicional y un buen castigo a una linea inferior.
Jan-31-12  Knight13: <MrMrsKnight: What was Steinitz thinking with 29...Qd4? 29...Qc6 looks better to me> 29...h5 is better. :-)
