The German unofficial World
Champion Karl Ernst Adolf
Anderssen is discussed in the
new number of the German
culture chess magazine Karl (1/18).
He was regarded as the first
World Champion in chess – unofficially
after he won the strong London-
tournament in 1851. He was then
beaten by Morphy in 1858, but after
Morphy retired, Anderssen was again
regarded as the number 1 player
in the chess world. The German
chess theoretician and diplomat
Tassilo von Heydebrand und der Lasa
is also being portraited here. There are
also an article about the candidates
tournament in Berlin in March.
This Magazine costs 6 euros and
shipping costs. I think it will cost about
11 euros, a bit more then 100 Norwegian
kroner. Run and buy!
