|Sep-14-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: Harrwitz plays very well, but what if Anderssen played 11.Ngxe4 ? |
|Sep-14-04|| ||tamar: Do you mean on move 12? 12 Nxc3 looks okay to me, but I would like to see Anderssen open the f file with 14 f3. 14 f4 can be ignored with 14...h6, but 14 f3 h6 15 fxe4 keeps the initiative. |
|Sep-19-04|| ||InspiredByMorphy: <tamar> I agree. Your line looks like it wins. |

I flicked through the game and I thought white was lost from here. In fact I was just going to type 'White should have just resigned here'. But I let the engine look at it before I commented, and I was right! Qe2 in this position and white should resign. So, anyone?? What level of play elo wise is this in today's money? I just picked this at random, it could be whites worst ever game, but I don't think this is master chess.. will someone please prove me wrong because that's what I want. I don't know much about these old players, but from what I do see, I see nothing that should have players/play like this classed anywhere near 2500 rated chess.
|Jan-07-14|| ||tamar: 2500 players starting from a Fischer Random position. That's about right.|
They might not even do as well.
|Jan-07-14|| ||MarkFinan: You show this game to someone who doesn't know who played it and they'll tell you it's far from top level chess. If I can see it then???|
|Mar-28-18|| ||yureesystem: I am surprise master of attack Anderssen didn't see 14.f3! ( instead of 14.f4?) 14...exf3 15.Nxf3 Qb6+ 16.Kh1 h6 17.Nh4+ kh7 18.Nxf5 wins a piece and still has a dangerous attack. 14.f3 opens the f-file and black lose if capture on f3-pawn, 14.f4 doesn't open the f-file. Noticed the black king is restrictive and can't escape so easily, this is something an attacker would noticed, definitely Tal would of played 14.f3!.|
|Mar-28-18|| ||Boomie: <yureesystem: 14.f4 doesn't open the f-file.>|
Neither does 14. f3. After 14...Qb6+ 15. Kh1 e3, white is in a bit of trouble.

The Ng5 is hanging and the QB has no moves. It will take white a couple of moves to untangle and by that time black should be able to consolidate.
As usual, I haven't used an engine so there may be a simple refutation.
