Adolf Anderssen - Post Morphy (part 6)
Post Morphy - London 1862
Three years after being defeated by Morphy, Anderssen won the London 1862 International tournament, the first international round-robin event (in which each participant plays a game against each of the others) with a score of twelve wins out of thirteen games, losing only to the Rev. John Owen and finishing 2 points ahead of Louis Paulsen, who had the best playing record in the early 1860s and was also a "top 5" player in the 1870s and early 1880s. Morphy had retired from chess at this time, so Anderssen was again generally regarded as the world's leading active player.
