Event table notes

Event data
Name: Café de la Régence Annual Tournament - 2nd Class, 1st Section
Place: Paris
Start date: 20 Mar. 1905
End date: May 1905
 
Notes:
Scores are consistent with a 5-player double-round all-play-all. I suppose 'Garcin' is 'J. Garcin' who played in Paris in 1919 and not the earlier Garcin of 1849-1851. Score of play-off match between Garcin and Gibaud not given, but won by Garcin (I use 1-0). Although this was part of an event referred to as 'le tournoi handicap annuel', it seems to have been divided into 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th class sections, in each of which the players would be expected to have played even. Cornil cites the 19 May 1905 issue of La Stratégie, which says the tournament was then being completed, so I assume it ended sometime in May.
