Jun-17-05  Pretzel Logic: Nice to see a vicious counterattack in the King Gambit accepted.

Braveo to "Mr. Combinations" (with apologies to <JayTheTactician>

Mar-12-07  crwynn: Playing over games like this it seems that Harrwitz understood something about chess that Anderssen did not...I am not sure Anderssen even knew what a "natural move" is, but he had that devilish ingenuity.
Mar-12-07  OJC: Anderssen didn't have to work too hard for the win since 29.Rxe5 was a huge blunder by Harrwitz.
Feb-07-09  Senor Gusanos: This game was part of a Blindfold Exhibition. Both players played the game without sight of the board.

  Honza Cervenka: 29...Ne3! looks like a material for Monday puzzle. Of course, 29.Rxe5 was a blunder and it was better to play 29.Qxe5.
