  brankat: From the intro: <"..this is the match later described as being played when "Zukertort was not yet Zukertort."">

Somehow the timing of Zuckertort's matches was not in his favour. After 1886 WC match it was then added: "..Zuckertort was no longer Zukertort." :-)

Mar-31-14  Tal1949: He lost in 1872 and 1886, so perhaps Zukertort was never Zukertort. Lol.
Mar-31-14  Poulsen: In London 1883 Zukertort was very much Zukertort.
