  Honza Cervenka: 51...Ne3+! 52.Bxe3 c2 would be quicker and more elegant finish.

Btw, 20....Qc7 looks very strange. Not only that white can snatch the Pawn with 21.Qxb4 but also 28...Qd8 with next 29...Qc7 looks like absurdity in that case. I wonder whether black's 20th move is correct here and I would say that maybe 20...Qe7 was played.

Aug-06-08  Voltaic: very interesting game, i've played along some games of these two and it seems it was almost always the same with them in the Evans: Paulsen advancing his q-side majority, Anderssen looking for an attack on the other wing.

i find rare 17.Bb1 and 18.Qb2, and later it came Qb1. on the other hand Paulsen's QN moves are nice to follow: Nb8-c6-a5-b7-d8-f7-h6-g4-f6
