National Public Radio had this story on Tuesday about David Shenk's book on the history of chess.
In the article, it states, "To serious chess players, the book's title has an obvious double meaning: It refers to the game itself and also to a particular match that was played by two masters -- Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky -- in London in 1851."
I looked up this game on Chessgames.com. It is quite amazing!!!
