Aug-01-04  vonKrolock: The apotheosis of the Evans Gambit - the full developed and menacing White position after 16.Re1 is more then worth a Pawn; In fact is hard to find a good defense for Black from here: 16...Bg4!? a better choice to avoid immediate disaster...; the actual 16...Ng6 simply loses at least a whole piece to 17.Rxg6, since if 17...hxg6, then 18.Bxf8 Kxf8 19.Qa3+ Kg8 20.Re8+ Kh7 21.Qf8! etc. This game was played in the open air, in a sunny summer afternoon, in a session in which the great Anderssen won the majority, but just this one was very pleasing for the young student from Silesia, Gustav Neumann...
Apr-24-06  zev22407: Tipical back rank attack.
Jul-24-06  buRnINGbeNd: 21. Bxf7!! is an absolutely beautiful move! Rxf7 fails to Re8+ and Qe6+ while Kh8 loses to the beautiful Ng6!. A stunning attack by white!

  Honza Cervenka: 21.Bxf7+ is pretty move but white was already a piece up and so utterly won.
Aug-13-06  coolthing76: A very fine game of the Evans Gambit.
Apr-25-10  birthtimes: Anderssen remembered this game, for two years later as White, he trapped Black's queen on the kingside...

White played 17. Rxg6 and won easily. There was another, more mysterious winning line:
17.Bb2, threatening mate. A quick look will how that there is only one sensible defence to that mate threat:
And now
18.Ng5! leaves black helpless: 19.Nxf7 comes next.
