28...Bd6 29.Rxh2+ Rxh2 30.Ke6 b6 31.b4

Aug-25-11  bengalcat47: As Fine said, "The King is a strong piece, use it!" -- although I don't think this is quite Fine had in mind!
Dec-30-11  Clodhopper: Neat ending, but 14... Be7 is so weak it is hard to believe it is real. It makes me suspect that De Riviere is a fiction and the game is actually a composition.
Jun-25-12  ForeverYoung: the final position is hysterical!

  FSR: My king is made for walking, and that's just what he'll do. One of these days my king is going to walk all over you!

  Phony Benoni: <"With Queens on the board, long King marching is uncommon; giving mate with the King, as it were, a miracle.

"Anderssen's King grimly treads across the field of battle, as if to have it out in person with his royal enemy. It is a pelting game, but it has that baronial elegance which is the nature and rare distinction of his play. He ought to have been a legend!"> -- William Ewart Napier

I'd say he is a legend

Jul-17-19  fkohn: <As Fine said, "The King is a strong piece, use it!"> True, but Fine also said that chess was about father murder, so, idk.
