Game 1 was won by Anderssen but it's not really an attacking game, and I had difficulty understanding why the game ended where it did. I may run that position in the computer as I did spend a good amount of time trying to figure out why the position would be resignable and couldn't come up with anything.
This is game 2 from the match and its short and sweet. Unfortunately, my model player is on the losing end. It's a Bishop's Gambit. One of the problems for black can be that despite taking away white's ability to castle by Qh4+, the queen can cause a loss of time for black when it gets chased away. In fact Black gets chased into a corner in this game. This is a nice study in taking the initiative and going directly for the win.

One other note: I successfully memorized the Immortal game yesterday. It was much easier than I expected, but I guess there's not too many moves and the intent of them is all pretty clear so easy to remember.
