  offramp: The position after 39. g4.

The e-pawn is about to queen but Black has a win with 39... Qf1+ 40. Kg3 Qg1+ 41. Kf3 Bf1!

In fact, 41...Bf1! is the only move to win.

The score gives Black's 39th move as 39...g5?=.

That seems to be a repeat of White's 39th move (P-KN4) and I think it's a transcription error.

The puzzle is that <if> Black played 39...Qf1+ instead of 39...g5, why would Neumann resign at that moment? He is about to queen, and if Anderssen doesn't find the ...Qg1+, ...Bf1 trick then Neumann could still win the game.
