Event data
Place: Paris
Start date: May 1855
End date: May 1855
 
Notes:
Staunton, in the Illustrated London News of 5 May 1855, says that Laroche had just arrived 'within the last few days at Paris' and started the match. In the 26 May 1855 issue (p.507) he gives the final result as 6-6. I assume, therefore, that the match took place entirely in May 1855. He mentions no draws and none occur among the games given in subsequent issues of the Illustrated London News, but the 6 May 1855 issue of the Era reports a partial result including 2 draws, and the 20 May 1855 issue of the Era gives the final result as +6-6=1. Thus, it is not clear whether there were 2 draws or 1. I will guess at 2.
