Sep-29-08  I Offer You A Resign: <Knight13> ...or if Ke6, Nd4+ also wins the rook. Game was well played by White!

Sep-21-14  sneaky pete: Yes, 14... c5 15.Qxc3 cxd4 16.Qxd4 Ba6 would have been much better for black, but who is to blame? The 1996 Pickard version of Gottschall's game collection has Anderssen playing white here. That edition is dedicated <To the Glory of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and His Holy Church>, so I guess they wouldn't lie.
