Chessgames.com Historical Chess Event
Leipzig (1877)
The German chess federations (Schachbundes) held congresses beginning in 1861. The Westdeutschen Schachbund held 13 events from 1861 to 1880. The Norddeutschen Schachbund held three from 1868 to 1872. The Mitteldeutschen Schachbund also had three, all in Leipzig 1871, 1876, 1877. At Leipzig 1877, the Anderssen Jubilee, leaders of the local chess federations decided to form a national federation. A repeat of the national Leipzig (1879) Deutschen Schachbund (DSB) tournaments began and continued until 1931. The regional tournaments were discontinued after 1880. The Leipzig 1877 Mittledeutschen Schachbund was held in honor of Adolf Anderssen. He seemed to have lost none of his strength, finishing 2nd in tournament. Anderssen won a playoff game with Zukertort for second 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.
