Chessgames.com Chess Event Description
Leipzig (1877)

The German chess federations (Schachbunde) held congresses beginning in 1861. The Westdeutscher Schachbund held 13 events from 1861 to 1880. The Norddeutscher Schachbund held three, from 1868 to 1872. The Mitteldeutscher Schachbund also held three, all in Leipzig, 1871, 1876, 1877. At Leipzig in 1877, leaders of the regional chess federations decided to form a national federation, the Deutscher Schachbund (DSB). A repeat of national DSB tournaments began in Leipzig (1879) and continued until 1931, whereas the regional tournaments were discontinued after 1880. The Leipzig 1877 event (organized by the Mitteldeutscher Schachbund) was called the Anderssen-Feier and held in honor of Adolf Anderssen. He seemed to have lost none of his strength, finishing =2nd in the tournament. Anderssen won a playoff game with Zukertort for 2nd place and then lost to the first place finisher, Louis Paulsen, in a match by the score of 5 to 3 with one draw. He also played at Paris (1878), finishing 6th in a strong field. He passed away at age 60 in March 1879.

  whiteshark: Here's another source for the <group photo>: http://www.ballo.de/Images/Andersse...
Jun-03-15  thomastonk: There are some German language errors in the introduction.

The plural of 'Bund' is 'Bunde' or 'Bünde'. So, the chess federations in the very first sentence are Schachbunde or Schachbünde.

The Westdeutsche<r> Schachbund ...

The Norddeutsche<r> Schachbund ...

The Mitteldeutsche<r> Schachbund ...

I don't understand <The Leipzig 1877 Mitt<le>deutschen Schachbund>. If it is meant as a name for the tournament, then it is wrong.

In July 1876(!), the Mitteldeutscher Schachbund held his second congress. There the idea was born to celebrate Anderssen's 50th chess anniversary. All German chess clubs were invited to support the event, and many did so.

The German name of the event was: die Anderssen-Feier (the Anderssen festivity).

Dec-30-15  ndg2: They did not draw very much back then, did they?
