After this game Steinitz is meant to have said that this player is stronger now than he was when he played La Bourdonnais.

(He was obviously thinking of Alexander McDonnell )

When told of this George Alcock MacDonnell replied: 'That other MacDonnell has been living on my reputation ever since he died.'

'Quotes & Queries' BCM October 1992 (page 522)
