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 be always remembered. Feel free to add comments, edit 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.
