Nov-28-04  Knight13: Wow! Anderssen is a good king side attacker! If 14... Kxh7? then 15. Qxg6+ Kg8 16. Qxg7# 1-0. Good game.
Jun-10-05  Doogie2005: Yes I wonder what the play would have been like if on move 13...BxN, this could have change whites attacking chances?
Jun-10-05  paul dorion: Wyville was either a terrible player of this scoresheet is wrong. 13-...Qc7 ?? is difficult to understand. Nh7 is pretty obvious.

That would have squelched the attack: 14.Qxg5 (14.fxg5 f4! 15.Rh3 Rf5 ∓) 14....Qc7 and White's pieces are very awkward.

In the opening 8.Ng5 threatening Nxe6 would have been very powerful, for example 8....Qf6 9.Qe2 Ne7 10.exf5 Nhxf5 11.Nce4 Qg6 12.g4 Nh6 13.h4 and there is no good answer to 14.h5.
