  MissScarlett: Game appears in the <British Chess Review>, vol.1 (1853), p.227, with the difference that <16.Qa4+ Bd7 17.Qb3> is played, so the games diverge until <24...Bxf5> restores the harmony.

The ' score' is right... Anderssen himself published it in the Schachzeitung 1851 p. 173.

  MissScarlett: Does the inclusion of <16.Qa4+ Bd7 17.Qb3> make greater sense of <17...Bd6>?
Jan-24-23  Sirius69: 26) Re4? It's okay to take the rook with gxf5 since it also wins with a piece up with correct play.
