Since Eugène Rousseau wasn't born until about 1810 (in France), that's a good possibility. Before moving to New Orleans, Rousseau had played Kieseritzky in 100 games at the Café de la Régence, losing by a slim margin. He died in 1870.

Jun-25-06  sneaky pete: This (imcomplete) game was played (as well as the other 1801 Rousseau game) around 1680 by Roussereau.
Feb-02-08  wolfmaster: Rousseau was born in 1810 and NN was 211. Weird.
Sep-23-18  Yigor: If NN plays 21...Nc4, it leads to a draw. ;)
Dec-08-20  Parlour Panther: What's wrong with 10......Qg2+ White is in trouble no?
