Event table notes

Event data
Name: 1st Yorkshire County Chess Club Meeting - Class B
Place: Bradford
Start date: 23 Jan. 1886
End date: 5 June 1886
 
Notes:
The first two rounds were played on 23 Jan. 1886; the third and fourth were played on 5 June 1886. Note that the players who drew in the first round both advanced to the second. The draw in the second round between Hawke and Woollard was to be played off, according to the Leeds Mercury of 20 Feb. 1886 (p.7). The issue of 13 Mar. 1886 (p.7) says that the result of their game in the Bradford-Wakefield Woodhouse Cup match was going to be used to decide the point, but in that event they scored only two more draws. I have yet to find a report of how it was finally decided, but the report in the Leeds Mercury of 15 May 1886 (p.7) shows that Hawke had now been chosen to proceed to the third round. Blythe had a bye in the third round. The report in the Leeds Mercury of 12 June 1886 (p.7) says that Blythe beat Yates in the fourth round, so presumably Gorell had a bye. In any case, Blythe and Gorell still had to play off. The identities of some of the players is uncertain (e.g. Yates and Rhodes).
