Nov-25-05  aw1988: Why do you always TYPE IN CAPS?
Nov-26-05  JYMMI: because i allways forget "caps lock" active
Dec-22-05  Necessary Truths: Why does the database have two copies of this game? The details are slightly different, but I doubt that Anderssen would've played into the exact same trap twice against Zuckertort in the same year.

  suenteus po 147: This game is the "correct" version according to Tartakower and Du Mont, in that it was played, once, in Breslau. The final moves, though, are 11.Bg5+ hxg5 12.Qxg5#
Nov-01-07  Cibator: Purists would argue that you shouldn't sac more material than is strictly necessary - hence (11)Bg5+ is "more correct" than (11)Qg5+. But having the chance, who wouldn't give up the Q instead?!
Aug-28-08  dwavechess: very true cibator. Zukertort concur with rybka 2.3.2 at 14 ply in 9/11
Aug-28-08  Zonszein: Zukertot was not inferior to Steinitz. Unless it was just psychlogically

I think

Sep-10-08  dwavechess: For Rybka 3 w32 6/11 at 3 minutes per move, Rybka doesn't sees the possibilities of the knight or Anderssen had a better defense.

  GrahamClayton: 7...h6? - 7...Be7 is much better, forcing the White knight to retreat.
