Event table notes

Event data
Place: Paris
Start date: 1849
End date: July 1849
This was the second of two matches. Morgell won the first match but under the condition that to win the match, Preti had to win in the ratio of 1.5 to 1 game (i.e., 3 to 2; see La Régence, 1849, p.220). The exact score of the first match is not given. The result of the second was reported in the Aug. 1849 issue of La Régence (p.228). I am guessing that it finished in July 1849.
