from Leonid Shamkovich & Eric Schiller's book Spanish - Schliemann Jaenisch..
<The little-known Dr. Adolf Schliemann contributed much to the theory in a series of articles published in the 1860's. These would hardly have been sufficient to merit the naming of the opening after him, but fate intervened in the form of East-West rivalry, and now the opening is called the Schliemann Defence in English-speaking countries and the Jaenisch Gambit elsewhere. Although the authors prefer the latter term, both titles are used interchangeably in the present work.>
rest in peace, Adolf Schliemann..
|May-22-12|| ||thomastonk: <wordfunph> I have seen Schliemann's articles (Schachzeitung 1867-68) and verified that they deal with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Bc5 4. c3 and only now 4.. f5. This is by the way well-know, see for example the <Oxford companion to Chess>.|
