|Dec-03-04|| ||Knight13: I can't believe Harrwitz lost to Dufresne! Harrwitz should be a much better player. |
|Dec-22-06|| ||tamar: Dufresne, 19 years old at the time, finds some beautiful moves-22 Nf6 27 Kh1 and 29 Qe8 to beat the more established Harrwitz.|
|Aug-14-07|| ||Monkey King: Nf6+!! gxf6 Rxg6+!!, very nice.|
|Aug-15-07|| ||contra: The beauty of the entire combination must be attributed to the long diagonal bishop on b2.|
|Apr-28-08|| ||Whitehat1963: Wow! What a wild game! Beautiful finish.|
|Apr-28-08|| ||Whitehat1963: There has to be one helluva puzzle near the end of this one. What's the best point for a good weekender?|

To be precise, 18 years old, since his birthday was 14 February 1829, and the game must have been played during Harrwitz's brief visit to Berlin in late December 1847 or early January 1848. By 26 January, Harrwitz was already in Breslau commencing a match with Anderssen. (See Schachzeitung, February 1848, p. 95 and 98.)

Played in Dec. 1847 - Sources: CPC Ser.1 Vol.9 , p. 66 and without date in J. Dufresne, Lehrbuch des Schachspiels 1892, pp. 100-102. Schachzeitung , p. 98.
|May-18-18|| ||fredthebear: Copied from Dufresne's biography page:
Dufresne's "Little Textbook of Chess" continues to be published (German, of course) in its 31st edition at least; about 760 pages, with 78% of content devoted to openings with 130 illustrative games. After Dufresne died in i893 (12 years after first edition), Jacques Mieses was given the editorial work which lasted till 1954. After that Rudolf Teschner edited it until his death in 2006. I don't know who may have taken over. It has been and remains what I think is the best 1 volume reference since started in 1881."
-- Thank you scassislusor!
