Dec-08-05  forcedmatefanatic: Why heavens! And , as it were , what the hey?!?!?!
Aug-25-06  priapus56: Sorry to be so dumb (beginner) but how does White win in this game? Or has the information been lost?
Aug-25-06  Ziggurat: <priapus> White is up a rook and two pieces. There is no way that black can put up any resistance, so he resigned. It looks as if black thought he would be able to trap white's queen, that's why he was willing to give up so much material.

  whiteshark: Anderssen missed a winning combination two times.

click for larger view

First, when playing <20... Qf8?!> here, while <20... Ng3!!> was winning, e.g. 21. Nxg3 [blocking the queen's flight]... Be7 22. Qh5 Rxg3

Second after <21. Dxh5??> [better 21.g4 Nf6 22. g5 Nd7 23. Nc3], when playing the losing move <21... Be7??> instead of <21... Rh6!!> the winning one.
