Event data
Place: Montreal
Start date: 1876
End date: 1876
Part of a 12-game match in which Henderson gave different odds (Pawn and Two Moves, the Exchange and the Knight). The report in the Huddersfield College Magazine (Jan. 1877, p.116) gives only the total of the entire match (6.5-5.5 for Shaw), so I have simply guessed at the scores at each of the odds, so as to make the correct total (the break-down does not matter for ratings purposes).
