  An Englishman: Good Evening: Normally, games with two Bishops vs. two Knights on a wide-open board with passed pawns for both players favor the player with the Bishops. This is one impressive exception to the rule. I must admit, however, that from about move 7 through about move 30, it looks like neither player has any idea of how to handle the position.
Jul-03-08  robinpark98: I'll bet Anderssen was totally emarrassed after he lost towards the Anderssen Opening (1. a3).
Jul-03-08  robinpark98: After Kxg4, White has an enormous material advantage.

  GrahamClayton: This was the first game of the series between Vant' Kruijs and Anderssen. Despite winning with 1.a3, Van't Kruijs did not use the Anderssen Opening in his remaining games with White, preferring 1. c4 instead.
May-19-09  Chess4Life99: Wow white crushed in the opening!!! And he was using his opponents opening!!!!!
Sep-23-09  WhiteRook48: Anderssen must not have liked this
Mar-30-18  schnarre: ...2...Bc5 (or even 3...Bc5) tends to fail for Black regularly against Anderssen's Opening. 3.e3 defangs it immediately, & the Bishop becomes an exposed target more often than not.
