|Aug-13-12|| ||Poisonpawns: One of the great ONE MOVE BLUNDERS that you`ll find in 28..Qb7?? Black has to play 28..e4 and win.|
|Apr-30-16|| ||OMH: Yes, the game was played in Breslau in June 1845, as mentioned upon its publication in the Schachzeitung, September 1846, p. 89. (I donít have a source for the exact date June 26.)|
The inaccuracy of the 1846 date is also confirmed by the fact that this game had already been published in the Chess Playerís Chronicle, August 1845, p. 240. This version differs from that later published by Schachzeitung in three particulars: the CPC says that the game was played in Leipzig rather than Breslau; it gives Blackís last move as 28... Qxa2 (otherwise the scores are identical); and most importantly, it presents the game with players reversed, as Lasa vs Anderssen!
As the game was played by German players in Germany, I am inclined to believe that the CPC got the details confused and the German magazine is more to be trusted in this matter. Thus the date is the only detail to be corrected.
