Mar-10-06  Knight13: Demonstrates the power of the Center and good developement.
Mar-21-11  ForeverYoung: amazing tactical game. Anderson fights back gamely with a counterattack out of nowhere and Steintz holds on and triumphs with a tactic.
Jan-31-12  Knight13: <ForeverYoung: amazing tactical game. Anderson fights back gamely with a counterattack out of nowhere and Steintz holds on and triumphs with a tactic.> Anderssen gave his best on the Kingside, but no where near enough.
