Jun-10-06  bumpmobile: A brilliant simplification into a won endgame starting with 50...f3!
Sep-25-13  thomastonk: Very interesting game. Naturally Anderssen considered the eye-catching 23.. ♖e2+! 24.♔xe2 ♕xc2+. Black threatens to win the rook on h1, and if White's king marches under checks to the g-file, then Black has ♘e6 . I think it often depends on which move springs in someone's mind first. Anderssen's 23.. ♖e4 is okay, but much more complicated, I think.

25.. c5 looked great to me, but then I couldn't make it work after 26.♖f4. So, 25.. ♖g2+ 26.♖f2 ♖g1 looks strong.

29.c6! d4! 30.cxb7 dxc3 etc, that's quite amazing! And 33.♗b3?! (♕c5) ♕c7+ 34.♔d4+ ♘e6+ would have been three checks in a row.

The technical part is played very well by Anderssen, but I don't understand <bumpmobile>' praise of 50.. f3. This position is won in so many simple ways, whereas the pawn ending is rather a complicated one.
