Jul-15-11  YoungEd: Shouldn't this be listed as a Scotch Gambit instead of just a KP game? I don't know what 17. c4 was about, since at the very least Black could have picked up the exchange. But the final move is much prettier.

  perfidious: <YoungEd> This is indeed a Scotch Gambit.

Rough day at the office for Anderssen-his play here was well below his usual standard.

My guess is that c4 was played with the idea of c5 next and shutting out the bishop on b6. Unfortunately, this move is just too darned slow in this position.

White probably didn't move his rook on f1 for his 17th move because I reckon doing so would have allowed black 17...Rxd3.
