Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-12-05  Mate Hunter: If 18...Bg7 19.Qh6 and 20.Qxg7# (19...Qf6 20.Nxf6#) or if 18...Bg5 19.Rxg5+ Qxg5 20.Qxg5+ (20...Kh8 21.Qh6+ Kg8 22.Nf6#) 20...Kh7 21.Nf6+ Kh8 22.Qh6#. 12...g5 was weak for black's king. The move leads to weak defence for the king.
Aug-23-06  sneaky pete: More likely (considering style of play and opening repertoire) Anderssen is white here, as in the duplicate (with 20.Nxf6+ ..) Anderssen vs Lowenthal, 1851. Oxford says Anderssen wins (1-0 after 20.Nxf6+ .. referring to The Chess Player's chronicle), but curiously Pickard (<The Chess Games of Adolph (sic) Anderssen>, based on Von Gottschall's book) gives the win (after 20.Rg3+ ..) to Löwenthal.
