The evergreen game

Published on Thursday, July 23, 2015 in |

The evergreen game is (like the immortal game) another famous chess game from Adolf Anderssen. The game was played against Jean Dufresne in 1852 and can also be found in the ICOFY database that we have used during one of our previous lessons. The name evergreen means something like “Forever Young”.
The whole game can be replayed below, but I think that the most interesting part of the game are the last moves starting from the position in the diagram below.

This is a mate in four exercise. Can you solve it, or do you have to look at the full game?
The mating pattern is rather nice. Are you already familiar with the Immortal Game or do you want to proceed with revisiting the Pin.
