Apr-30-05  Jaymthegenius: Kosteniuk would easily defeat Anderssen, black played a nice game until the blunder.
Jun-17-05  ryanpd: lol Jay. You are either a hilarious gimmick or a complete idiot
Jun-30-05  aw1988: <Jaymthegenius> Um, that's an interesting statement...
May-06-06  Peter Jones: Against Dufresne in Berlin 1851 Anderssen missed 23.Qb5!! which forces mate. Don't you agree?
May-08-06  Richerby: <Peter Jones> Fritz 8 seems to agree.
Nov-08-06  Gameoverziggy: WOW Kosteniuk got totally outplayed lol

  fm avari viraf: <Peter Jones> You rightly pointed out 23.Qb5 which would bring the curtains down. However, during the game we tend to miss simply moves & embark on diferrent plans.
Mar-18-08  Samagonka: Got to love white's attacking tactics especially Re7 and the nonchalant havoc caused by those knights.
Mar-18-08  smarterthanbobby: cool opening...
Mar-26-12  Anderssen99: After: 26. ...,Re8 "The Fireside Book of Chess" does not give the strongest winning continuation. Best seems: 29.Ne5+,Ke7 (...,Kc7. 30.Qd7+,Kb8. 31.Nc6+ mating). 30.Qa3+!,Kd8 (...,Ke6. 31.Ng4+,Kd7. 32.Nxf6 CHECK, and Black doesn't have time to play ...,Rxe1 mate). 31.Nxf7+,Qxf7. 32.Qd6+,Qd7. 33.Nc6+,Kc8. 34.Qb8 mate.
