Jan-04-09  WhiteRook48: wow... two good players
and Kolisch, although he seems to be losing a bit more than I expected.

Anderssen vs Kolisch, 1859

I guess London 1861 is the correct date

  dernier loup de T: 26...Bxe1?? Did Kolisch really expect Anderssen would not answer 27.Rxg7+, but take immediately the bishop?: of course, instead of this suicidal 26...Bxe1, 26...g6 had to be played without delay, and the position of Black would then have been perfectly secure, even with an advantage...

  dernier loup de T: 21.Nc6!! would have been much better, and even decisive; because the black queen would then have been forced to leave the protection of the Nf6, with a following collapse; let's say 21.Nc6 Qd7 (or Qe8) 22.Bxf6 gxf6 23.Nh5 Bd8 24.Qf3 and the black position is falling apart.
