Event table notes

Event data
Name: City of London Club Handicap
Place: London, England
Start date: Oct. 1872
End date: Dec. 1872
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was a 48-player knockout handicap tournament. For the first two rounds we know who beat who, but not the scores, so each is recorded as 1-0 here. Beyond the second round, even who beat who is known in only a few cases. I have some results from Tim Harding, who cites Land and Water (19 Oct. 1872) and The Field (19 Oct. 1872; 22 Nov. 1872). The result of 3 games in the 'final pool' between de Soyres and Fenton are given in the Illustrated London News of 18 Jan. and 8 Feb. 1873 (this source says 'still pending' but this can't be right). The result of the final match between de Soyres and Vyse is given in the Field (4 Jan. 1873).
