Zukertort vs Adolf Anderssen, 1865

Nov-24-05  tldr3: <aragorn69> Berthold Suhle was the best player in the world at some point? I've never even herd of him

  naresb: 10... Qd7 was better to avoid getting pinned by a Knight.

<keypusher> Yes that one was quick one too. In fact there were two matches played between these two players in the year 1865, both won by Zukertort, one C60 game ended in 12th move another C37th game ended in 17th move.

Zukertort met Adolf Anderseen in Breslau and started playing chess....source

Jun-26-15  chessanalysis: Why not 10...f6 after 10. Bg5
