Event table notes

Event data
Name: British Chess Association - Tennyson Prize Tournament
Place: London, England
Start date: 22 June 1885
End date: 1 July 1885
 
Notes:
The Chess Monthly of July 1885 (p.325) lists number of games played and won. Reconstruction of the full crosstable is possible from the regular reports in the Standard and the Morning Post (as well as some in the Daily News, Pall Mall Gazette, and other British newspapers). Clearly many games were not played. Reeves played only Pollock; MacDonnell played only Pollock and Smith; and the game Heppell-Donisthorpe was not played.
