  Honza Cervenka: Weakening of Kingside was too grave and Anderssen exploited it for a fierce attack. He could have played also 23.Qxe6 fxe6 24.Nxd5+ Kg8 25.Nxc7 Bxc7 26.Bf7+ with decisive advantage.
Aug-02-06  gambitfan: I have just begun an internet game with my opponent playing the Petroff...

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 Qe7...

I just played : 4.Nf3 but I hesitated with 4 d4 ...

Aug-04-06  gambitfan: Strangely enough, I am just beginning my third Petrov in 2 days... and all of three with 3... Qe7 !!

  Phony Benoni: And now you know why Kolisch gave up professional chess for the stock market. Anything is less stressful than being chased all around the board by the Mad Professor.
Dec-29-16  RookFile: Black's bishop on b6 was misplaced.

Lot more lucrative into the bargain--and Kolisch was a <pretty> good player in his own right.

Dec-29-16  Robyn Hode: Good thing Black didn't weaken his king's safety with any rash pawn moves...
Dec-29-16  The Kings Domain: It's a game like this which made Morphy rudely dismiss Kolisch's challenge for a match. Well-played game by Anderssen; the road was long, but he finally got there.
Dec-29-16  ColeTrane: Gorgeous king trot.
Dec-29-16  morfishine: Dumb Game

Dumb Game title

But thats normal

  Phony Benoni: A game full of thud and blunder as much as blood and thunder. On such occasions, I recall; the philosophy of dog poop.

As long as there are dogs, there will be dog poop. You can try to lessen its frequency or severity, but you can't prevent it completely.

At some point, the poop will show up. And when it does, you simply have to accept it as an inevitable consequence of a dog, and deal with it, and then go on.

Yes, dog poop has to be acknowledged. But it you look at a dog and all you can think about is their poop. you will never be able to fully appreciate the love and companionship and happiness a dog can offer.

Chess is like that.

As long as there is chess, there will be mistakes. You can try to lessen their frequency or severity, but you can't prevent them completely.

At some point, mistakes will show up. And when they do, you simply have to accept them as an inevitable consequence of chess, and deal with them, and then go on.

Yes, mistakes have to be acknowledged. But it you look at a game and all you can think about are the mistakes, you will never be able to appreciate the pleasure. and satisfaction and happiness that chess has to offer.

Dec-31-16  Nova: Haha, lovely post by <Phony Benoni>! Whether there are mistakes or not, I would be pleased to have contributed to such a fun game!

It would be a shame to toss games like this away because of "imperfect" play...mistakes happen! Best some times to sit back and enjoy the art and beauty of a chess game :)
