  offramp: A really well played game by both players. Neumann seems to get a won game but the always inventive Anderssen creates a counter attack.

White would like to play 46.Qc8, but the small riposte 46...Qg2# puts a kibosh on that.

Anderssen's clever defence led to a RvN ending, which they both played well and eventually drew.

But in that earlier position the dreaded SF9 shows a surprise winning move. Would any human have played
46.h3!
?

The idea is to stop the black queen from gazing at g2 like a psychopath at a coed's window. So if she goes to e2, then
47.R3d2 shoos her away.

Good game! Good game!
