Event table notes

Event data
Name: Café de la Régence, Annual Handicap
Place: Paris
Start date: 6 Feb. 1881
End date: Apr. 1881
Partial results available. There were 35 players and three knockout rounds, then the final 5 played a double round all-play-all. Boukoffsky was 3rd with 4 points, Gribius was 4th with 3.5 points, but the odds received by these players is not stated. Clerc and Najotte were both in the first class and so would have played even against each other. Only the total scores in the final all-play-all of these top two players can be used. Ending date unclear but by the dates of the issues of La Stratégie in which reports appeared (see Cornil), it must have ended between mid-March and mid-April. I will take April as the ending month.
