    I'm pretty sure those guys never played each other.  But anyway, why look at some dusty old game when you can see a nifty slogan instead!

    Shazam!  Now there's a game, and with a computer no less!  Or at least it's a board...but it's another one of those blitzkrieg-eye-view ones (uh-oh, I think I'm getting vertigo)...

    Some provocators wrongly report that 1.Steinitz was world champion for many years, 2. he never, ever played this opening in his life. Maybe he did after death... can you provide the scoresheets?

    circumstances of the 1886 match.In 1886 these two great chess minds sat down to play what is now regarded by most chess historians as the first official World Chess Championship.

    After Zukertort wiped the floor with Steinitz in New York (+4-1=0) Zukertort suffered what we would call a mini-stroke Steinitz soon overcame his deficit

    Zukertort played 1 e4 in one game; his other 9 Whites were all Queen's Gambit Declined.

    Steinitz played 1 e4 in all his games as White in the match.

    Zukertort had played the Colle-Zukertort as early as 1883, and tried it again in his match against Blackburne in 1887, but he didn't play it when the title was on the line.
