  hez: HEY WAIT A MINUTE .....

This game is EXACTLY the same as the Steinitz vs G MacDonnell game in 1866.

How is that possible CHESSGAMES.COM???

  Calli: As <Hez> sez it's a duplicate of Steinitz vs G MacDonnell, 1866

I think the Steinitz game is bogus. It's too modern an opening. How to prove the negative?

The actual column is here: http://bklyn.newspapers.com/image/5... Black's forename is revealed in the text as "Thomas J. Johnston, former secretary of the Brooklyn Chess Club"
