  FSR: This game was a thriller compared to Weiss' game against Jacques Schwarz (a different Schwarz?) three years later, another Exchange French that featured almost identical play by the two players throughout the game, culminating in the game being drawn in an absolutely symmetrical position.

  sachistu: Speaking of identical play <FSR> did anyone notice the game Max Weiss vs A Schwarz (Graz 1880) is a duplicate for J Berger vs A Schwarz (same tournament)?

The Deutsche Schachzeitung citations are correct in as much as that is how the games were published in those editions (e.g. 1881 and 1884). However, the 1884 book lists the date as Sept 3rd, 1880 whereas the 1881 book lists Sept 4th, 1880.

I do not have round-by-round results, but the crosstable indicates both encounters were draws. If those dates are correct, then both players decided to repeat the/a game from the prior day (which, is possible, but dubious) or DSz is wrong. Can that be?!! Can't trust any source these days!
