The Evergreen game is a famous chess game played in 1852 between Adolf Anderssen and Jean Dufresne. Adolf Anderssen was one of the strongest players of his time, and was considered by many to be the world champion after winning the 1851 London tournament. Jean Dufresne, a popular author of chess books, was a master of lesser but still considerable skill. This was an informal game, like the "immortal game." Wilhelm Steinitz later identified the game as being the "evergreen in Anderssen's laurel wreath," giving this game its name.
The German word Immergrün (Evergreen), used by Steinitz, refers to a specific Evergreen plant, called Periwinkle (Vinca) in English. The symbolic meaning is expressed in the French translation, the "Forever Young Game" (La Toujours Jeune).
