|Sep-07-05|| ||Brown: After reading Watson's view of this game, I see what he means, how this game is very straighforward, controlled, aggressive and modern. Perhaps not in the sense that it's the Philodor defense, but white's play overall, especially the exchange of the two bishops.|
34.Nef6+ is a nice combination. Light compared to Adolph's usual stuff, but he was clearly positionally superior, and took advantage.
|Sep-07-05|| ||Koster: Did Paulsen always play out hopeless positions like that?|
|Sep-07-05|| ||Brown: Koster, you don't happen to live in SF and do the Tuesday night marathon tournaments, do you?|

After 15... cxd6: - "[...] After the text White will be able to keep a Knight planted in the middle on the board; indeed, his entire army is centralized. Black's Bishops, especially the dark-squared one, have little scope."
About 20. a3: - "A good move objectively and a powerful move psychologically. Faced with no direct threat, Black finds it difficult to make a useful move."
After 23... Re6: - "With Black unable to do much except wait, White conducts a general Kingside advance. Such an advance may further increase White's spatial advantage, open lines against the Black King, or force additional weaknesses in Black's pawn structure."
|Aug-01-09|| ||ToTheDeath: A game that belies Anderssen's reputation as a purely combinative player.|
<11...Bd7?> An error which allows White to resolve the situation in the center to his favor. 11...h6 Bh4 12.Qd7 is a better way to equalize.
<14...Bf8> A sad necessity. If 14...dxe5 15.Nxe7+ Rxe7 16.Rxe5 and the bishop is lost. 14...Bc6 15.e6! fxe6 16.Rxe6 Qd7 17.Rde1 Bf8 18.Ng5! is also poor.
<15...cxd6> Or 15...Bxd6 16.Nxc7!
Anderssen is thus able to get permanent outposts for his knights. Paulsen was a master of the two bishops, but White played to create a knight-friendly environment, limiting their scope.
A blunder allowing a winning breakthrough- 33...Be6 was correct, retaining decent chances to defend.
The finish is simple and crisp.
|Nov-03-09|| ||ariel el luchador: Una buena partida posicional de Anderssen en la primera parte del torneo estuvo muy erratico, además de perder 2 partidas con Steinitz,ojala hubiera jugado así todo el torneo|
|Nov-29-09|| ||ToTheDeath: claro, era un jugador erratico, pero era mejor en jugada posicional que unas piensan.|
|May-06-10|| ||ariel el luchador: No dije que Anderssen era erratico sino que en la primera parte del torneo estuvo erratico y en cuanto al juego posicional de Anderssen concuerdo con the death, y también me alegra que sepa castellano y haya hecho un buen analisis de la partida.|
