|Jun-23-06|| ||Knight13: Instead of 12...g6, 12...Rd8 might have been better. Too much dark square weaknesses.|
|Jun-23-06|| ||Rocafella: I think g6 is supposed to protect h7, but at what cost? It really weakens the pawn structure. This was exploited later in the game By Adolf.|
|Jun-23-06|| ||Knight13: <I think g6 is supposed to protect h7, but at what cost?> At the cost of taking White's d4 pawn without discovery. Yeah, like a strong player such as Anderssen is gonna miss that.|
|Jun-23-06|| ||Pawn and Two: <Knight 13> You are right, 12...Rd8 would have been better than 12...g6.|
What would have happened if Black played 28...Qxd4 or 28...Rxd4?
|Jun-23-06|| ||Knight13: <What would have happened if Black played 28...Qxd4 or 28...Rxd4?> Maybe 28...Rxd4? 29. Nf3 Rd7 30. Ng5 f6(or f5) 31. Nxe6, forking. 28...Qxd4 29. Rg4 Qc5 30. Nd3, winning a rook. So 29... Qb6 30. Nd7, etc. winning a bunch of material. This is what I see.|
|Jun-24-06|| ||Pawn and Two: <Knight13> 28...Qxd4 would be to White's advantage after 29.Rg4 Qxe5 30.Rxb4.|
However, Black could have played 28...Rxd4 29.Nf3 Rd1 30.Ng5 Rxf1+ 31.Kh2 Qxg5 32.Qxg5 Rxf2 or 28...Rxd4 29.Nxg6 fxg6 30.Rxg6+ hxg6 31.Qxg6+ =.
After 28...Qe8, Anderssen had a winning position.
|Jun-24-06|| ||Knight13: <Pawn and Two> Okay... 28... Qe8 was stupid. He played Qe7 next move anyway why not 28...Qe7?|
|Jun-24-06|| ||Pawn and Two: <Knight13> Black appears to have several moves that may hold the position, including 28...Qe7. White would probably try 29.Rg4 with the possibility of Rh4 and Nxg6.|
28...Qe8 was very weak.
More risky, especially against Anderssen, and probably weaker, but interesting, would have been an additional pawn grab by Clerc with 27...Rxa2.
|Jun-24-06|| ||RookFile: Notice how Anderssen was fearless about taking on an isolated d pawn in the opening.|
