Jul-27-06  Whitehat1963: Why not 31. Nf6?
Oct-19-06  Cyphelium: <Whitehat1963> Anderssen probably wanted to avoid 31.- ♕xf6 32. gxf6 ♘f3+ 33. ♔g2 ♘d2+, winning back the queen. Possibly he was wrong in doing so however; 34. ♔h2 ♘xb1 35, ♖xb1 seems rather unclear to me, so it might be an alternative to the unimpressive game continuation.

According to the database, Anderssen had not played the King's Gambit since 1868.
