Hirschfeld - Urusov Match (1866)

Moscow, Russia; 14 March 1866 & 18 March 1866

"Fürst S. Ouroussow in Moskau, hat der Redaction dieser Zeitung fünf Partien übersandt, welche der ausgezeichnete Schachmeister kürzlich gegen unsern Landsmann P. Hirschfeld in zwei Sitzungen führte. Der Fürst gewann zwei, verlor eine und machte zwei remis."(1)

Translation: Prince S. Ouroussow in Moscow sent the editors of this newspaper five games which the expert chess master recently played in two sessions against our compatriot P. Hirschfeld. The prince won two, lost one and drew two.

Four of the five games are dated. These games were played at two sittings, the first on March 14th (at least one game and probably the game not printed in Neue Berliner Schachzeitung) and at a second meeting on March 18th (three games).
