And both went nuts. Just goes to show ya.
no i think morphy would win on tactics
Steiniz is a tactical beast too in his peak.
But Morphy went nuts first!
A match between them in middle 1870s would have been interesting!? By that time Steintz would have gained credibility. I think Steinitz's improved defensive technique would have eventually stopped Morphy. In a match the first to win ten games, i could imagine Morphy when leading, abandon the match, just like Karpov did in 84. Steintz had a strong constitution as exemplified in his match v Zukertort 1886. Morphy i think would have needed pre match tournaments or matches to get him up to speed. I think that is one of the reasons Fischer did not defend his title in 75.

Beating Anderssen in 1866 didn't give Steinitz credibility?
morphys endgame skills trumph steintizs' (play over their games). The great american can even play solid positional chess. Steinitz sticks to his principles win or lose while morphy sticks to his plans and emither mates or gets a formidable position. Morphy would have definetly beat Steinitz but not crush him totally.
