Nov-19-03  Calli: The great Anderssen Buckles under pressure!
Feb-12-05  semesterian: Black's 12...Nf4 is an error, as is 13...Neg6. Meister Anderssen was a little too enterprising in this game. Dover's "A Picture History of Chess" suggests that the two did play more than one casual game, but only this one is recorded.
Feb-12-05  schnarre: A pity.
Aug-11-06  priapus56: I found this game in Cunnington's Chess Openings for Beginners. He says Black could have recovered his position by 11....P-QB3.but I think he meant move 12 not 11.

Nov-11-09  GMMandetowitch: Anderssen didn't know the principles of the Isolated Queen Pawn,by moving his knights away from the blockade of the d5 blockading square.Of course we can't blame him,I don't think anybody had this modern strategical principles back in 1851.
Nov-11-09  bvwp: Moves 12-14, Buckle's developing, establishing control of the open file, whereas Anderssen's simply attacking.
Feb-16-10  ariel el luchador: Un triunfo del juego posicional sobre el combinativo una lastima Anderssen tiene mejores partidas.
Nov-11-12  Sem: Perhaps 19. ... Bf5 would have been better.
