    Yeah, but Steinitz beat him in a match (I heard some of them were forfeits though).

    Yeah, that's true.

    One thing I found rather interesting recently was going through Chernev's Most Instructive Games and finding huge praise heaped on Bogoljubov-Reti Mahrisch-Ostrau 1923, which I thought was a pretty pedestrian affair actually.

    I never knew they even had an affair.  Who was the pedesrian?

    Andy, she looks young for someone from 1923? And where are the handsome male pedestrians?
