Adolf Anderssen was a great tactician and attacker, and was arguably one of the best players of his time. In this game against Dufresne in Berlin,1852, it became famous instantly after it was played. It was called the Evergreen Game by Wihelm Steinitz.




Adolf Anderssen played some of the most famous games ever. Sadly, he lost the most important matches, one against Paul Morphy and one against Wilhelm Steinitz. He was a great attacker though and had an amazing imagination. The Evergreen game will probably always be remembered. Feel free to edit or add comments, and hope you enjoyed it.

    A correction:
    This game was palyed in 1852; NOT 1952, Must be a typo in the description. 
    I hope it will be corrected soon.

    Thanks Ironman111 (and InDetention) for this article. I've just added some minor variations near the end of the game to improve the level of detail, but i also think there are some issues with two of the move comments that i don't know how to fix:

    • The comment for move 8 ("Threatening Bxf7") is too vague IMO. Is gaining a pawn really that important at this time? Or would Bxf7 lead to other threats afterwards?
    • The comment for move 21 is not quite right: white DOESN'T have to "keep on checking", he also has g3 available. But the sacrifice is worth it.

    Later Edit: nevermind my second point, it's wrong. Black can mate on either g2 or f2 regardless...
