Winner of international tournaments in London (1851 and 1862), Amsterdam (1861), Baden-Baden (1870).

In 1851 in London held the first international chess tournament. In the success of teachers of German Breslau believed few. Of course, it was nice problem, but his biggest achievement over the board that tournament was a tie in the match with Garrvitsem. However, Andersen more than confident п+п¦я-я+п¦п¦я-я- defeated all opponents (the competition was held on the Olympic system) and became the winner of the tournament. Particularly impressed contemporaries brilliant combinative style of the German chess player. Until 1858 its leading position in the chess world did not challenge anyone.

However, having met in a match with an American genius, Anderson suffered a severe defeat. I think many noted that compared with more recent batches great German player has played in this match too adventurous. Some Western chess researchers do not exclude that in the second match (by the way, Morphy did not keep the word and did not go to Breslau) the fight would have been much more as a persistent. In the sixties of the XIX century Andersen intensified, his style became more universal.

After gathering Morphy - he was again regarded as the strongest chess player the world. Even losing a match in 1866 Steinitz not strongly undermined his leadership position. Four years later, Andersen convincingly won the strongest tournament in Baden-Baden, ahead of her abuser and the equalizer through personal meetings. Andersen has lived all his life in his hometown of teaching at a local school. For his work he treated very seriously. In 1862 he became professor of mathematics and German, several years later, was awarded the honorary title of Doctor of Philosophy. Chess was the only hobby Andersen.

When, during the London tournament in 1851 he was asked why he never visited the world fair, he replied: "I came to London to play chess". The great German player was remarkably decent, pleasant and friendly person. Steinitz once remarked that one of Andersen's words often enough to put an end to the heated debate. After the death of Professor of Breslau, Potter wrote in his obituary: "On Andersen no one ever said bad words. As in life, and after the death of all chess players will be his friends. "
