Event table notes

Event data
Name: British Chess Association - Ruskin Prize Tournament
Place: London, England
Start date: 22 June 1885
End date: 2 July 1885
 
Notes:
The Chess Monthly of July 1885 (p.325) lists number of games played and won. Rabson is shown to have scored 0 out of 4, but reconstruction of the full crosstable (possible from the regular reports in the Standard and the Morning Post) shows that he actually scored 0 out of 5 games played. The only game not played was that between Reeves and Rabson.
