    An interesting update pointed out by Chess Blog friend Adolivio Capece

    The first great event in this town was played in 1870 (July 18 – August 4). It was a double round robin, with 9 players. The winner was Anderssen with 11 out of 16, second Steinitz 10.5, third (ex aequo) Blackburne and Neumann 10; etc.

    But the most important thing was that for the first time in the history the draws were considered and valued half a point. In the previous tournaments draws were not considered and the game played again.
    So starting from Baden-Baden 1870 the games ended with a draw received half a point.
