In the diagram material is even, but Black's Minor pieces are out of the battle And Whites pieces and pawns are threatening the Black King. Seeing his chance for a

strange back rank checkmate, Anderssen lures Black's King into the open with,

1 Qxg7+! Kxh7 ( Now 2 Rh3 fails to 2...Qh6, so White Prevents Black's Queen from defending)
2 f6+! Kg8 (even more abrupt is 2...Qxd3 3 Rh3+ Kg8 4 Rh8 Checkmate)
3 Bh7+! ( allowing White's rook to check the King with tempo. The immediate 3 Rh3 allows Black to create an escape route fo f7 for his King with 3 ...Rxf6 ) 3 ... Kxh7 4 Rh3+ Kg8 5 Rh8 Checkmate.

Anderson played such extraordinary games that some were given the distinction of a title. Two such games were dubbed "The Immortal Game" and " Evergreen Game"
