In 1873 he first played with Tchigorin, to whom he then gave the odds of a knight.
During the following seven years the pupil came to play a stronger game than his teacher, and in 1880 Schiffers lost the championship of Russia to Tchigorin.
He never showed any particular strain playing chess; rather in tournaments he always played well con amore, as if nothing were at stake .
On 29th November (12th December) a peaceful death put an end to his suffering.)It is also mentioned that Schiffers spoke German, English, Russian and French.
Furthermore, he was so good at drawing and painting (self-taught) that he was allowed to copy in the imperial hermitage.
Caught some nice 20-30 Yellowtail and drag worked great. The 12000\8000 Thunnus does still have some Metal in the Frame.
The clicking feature of the bait-runner is annoying, but does a great job of keeping just enough pressure to keep your line sung. This is the only downside to the Thunnus that I have hit so far.
Its a heap with a silhouette of rounded edges and it measures about 250 by 120 meters in the direction North to South.
Today its highest point reaches around 25 meters over the plains, bur erosion through rain and wind has flattened it out from a more lofty position.
Even more notable was his win against the 3/4 place winner Pillsbury.
His biggest opportunity of this tournament was in his 2nd round game against Lasker.
