  Honza Cervenka: 26...g6 would have been better.

  keypusher: 25. Rc3 and 26. Rg3 was an awwfully nice manuever, though.
Sep-27-06  forbismarck: I agree with you Honza Cervenka , 26.g6 would have clearly been better. Blockading the rook , and at the same time attacking the knight. Anderssen wouldn't have had much success if this had been played.
Oct-11-10  meppi: doesn't really attack the knight because the pawn is pinned. the rook on e1 has time to escape if g6 so the move Ba3 was wasted in this case.
Dec-22-14  poorthylacine: Anderssen could crush his opponent already after 21.Nc6!! and Black has no more satisfactory defense, for example: 1: 21...Qe8 22.Bxf6 gxf6 23.Nh5! or 23.Qf3!
2: 21...Qd7, the same: 22.Bxf6 gxf6 23. Nh5! or Qf3! 3: 21...Nxd5 22. Nxe7+ Nxe7 23.e5!
