  GrahamClayton: A neat sacrifice from Anderssen, dragging the Black King away from the White pawns.

47...ab6 loses to 48. a6 ♗b8 49. c7, and one of the pawns queens.

Mar-24-10  ballroomblitz: (to GrahamClayton) This great game was played by Ignaz Kolisch (not Anderssen)
May-22-14  yureesystem: This is a brilliant played by Kolisch, beating great Paulsen is a testament to Kolisch greatness.
Nov-09-18  jphamlore: This game is partially analyzed in Lasker's Manual of Chess. This seems a critical position after 16. f4:

According to Stockfish 9, after 16. f4, instead of Lasker's line 16...gxf6 17. fxe5 fxe5?? 18. ♖f6, there is the resource 16...gxf6 17.fxe5 f5! 18.c3 ♘xb3 19.axb3 dxe5 20.♖xf5 f6 21.♖af1 ♕f7

Nov-09-18  sudoplatov: Seems like 6... h6 is quite a bit better. Black ought not Castle Kingside in this type of position. The possible Pawn Storm outweighs Castling here.

  perfidious: Yes, Black can and should play 6....h6; it is to his advantage that his opponent has castled and he has not.
Nov-10-18  saturn2: Can black win a pawn at move 31? Probably not.

31...Bf6 32. Ke3 dxc5 33. dxc5 Bxb2 34. d6 Bf6 35. Ke4 Bd8 36. Kd5 f5 37. Ke6 g6 38. Kd7 Ba5 39. Kc8
