  TheAlchemist: Anderssen beaten by Pindar & Beaver? Souns like the bizarro Beavis & Butthead, or some company name.

  hesyrett: Could Anderssen have been giving a simul, with this being one of his losses? Anyhow, 9...Bd7 is much too superficial. How about 9...d6!? to forestall 10. f4 and distract White from his K-side attack? After 9...Bd7, 10. Nc3 can be met by 10...c6 with the idea of ...dxc2, deflecting White's KB, whereas 10. c3 spends a move taking away the QN's best square, and 10. cxd3 Nxd3 leaves Black ready to develop his QB, castle Q-side and exploit White's over-extension on the K-side.

  MissScarlett: Game appears in the <ILN> of October 24th 1857, p.418.

<L. Beaver> appears in a list of attendees at the Manchester congress of the British Chess Association where this game was surely played, as given in the <Manchester Courier> of August 8th 1857, p.7.

He could be the <Louis Beaver>, a Manchester jeweller of the period.
