Apr-21-05  lopium: They say : Congres international des echecs, 1869. But it's writted that the game was played in 1867. Ah ok, possible, yes.
Apr-21-05  SBC: Quoting from the May 8, 1880 issue of "The Field", a London paper" as transcribed at Chess Archaeology ( ):

"...immediately after the first Paris tournament of 1867 the fourth winner, Neumann, beat the second prize-holder, Winawer, without losing a single game, the latter only succeeding in drawing a few. While, however, many objections have been raised against the rules of previous tournaments, and more especially against the first Paris Congress, which was made a sort of handicap, owing to the ill-considered regulation that the drawn games should count fully against both parties..."

The tournament book, "Congres International d'Echecs Paris 1867" was written by Fery d'Esclands and published in Paris 1868.

The "1869" mentioned in the pgn comments must have been a typo.

You have good eyes!

Apr-21-05  lopium: Thank you for my eyes. But i'm sorry, i can't understand well English, so a i've a lot of difficulties to understand all what you said, but at least I understand the main lines.

  Honza Cervenka: 11...Bxd2 looks suspicious. White could have played also 14.Bxe7 Qxe7 15.d5 0-0-0 16.Bxc6 bxc6 17.Qa5 with advantage. 16...Rxd5?? was a blunder. After 16...Bxd5 17.Qxa7 Nc6 black's position could have been still playable.
