Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-03-04  Knight13: Anderssen is better. Can White just play 11. c3 and the danger of the Rook Fork is over?
Dec-20-14  ChessEthos: I guess 11. Be3 is a better move than 11.f4. It develops the White's dark squared bishop and it will help undoing the pin after White's possible idea of supporting the pawn on e5 by playing 12.f4 at some point.

  offramp: This was a cake-walk for Anderssen.
Oct-04-22  Chessius the Messius: 10. f4 is not good. Ironically, Black can just play f3 and then f4.

10. f3 Ng5 11. f4 Ne4 12. Nc3 Nxc3 13. bxc3

Oct-04-22  Chessius the Messius: Corr: 11. f3
