ADOLF ANDERSSEN vs JEAN DUFRESNE – Berlin, 1852
Going back to the old classics, we present you the Evergreen game between Anderssen and Dufresne played in Berlin in 1852.
The opening is the Italian Game: Evans Gambit (Pierce defense).
In this game, Anderssen uses the Evans Gambit to build his attack and gain initiative over his opponent. Despite today’s theory on Black’s defense against the Evans Gambit, the move 19.Rad1 is still considered nowadays a brilliant move by White. The bishop pair is so strong that Anderssen sacrifices the rook and the queen to set up the mating net!
