  Honza Cervenka: Samuel Mieses (1841 - 1884) was not only an uncle of Jacques but also a player of master class and one of "chess pupils" of Adolf Anderssen. He studied medicine at the University of Breslau (Wroclaw in Poland today) as well as Johannes Zukertort and was in fact Zukertort's chess master and regular opponent at the beginning of his career. An interesting article (in Polish) about the beginning of Zukertort's chess career and his chess friends is at
