    Bad idea. Gives black the initiative. Takes whites main advantage away and lets black take control of the center. I would never use this opening.

    This is spectacular for someone who prefers to play black. Great psychological value against somebody expecting to play down tempo.

    I used the Anderssen once against a real life friend and got a win.

    It is a good way to get rid of that nasty bishop on b4.

    The reversed Scotch is actually a blunder:

    You are right! Magnus plays a variety of openings (including anderrsons) so it is very difficult to prepare against.

    I saw somewhere in the comments that Carlsen played this? Is that true Surprised

    It is actually good. It stops the annoying pins. I think it is named after Adolf Anderson who was a strong chessplayer in the 19th century. And yes magnus does play a huge variety of openings. Anderson Opening, ruy lopez etc.
