Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manhattan Club Handicap Tournament
Place: New York
Start date: 21 Oct. 1884
End date: 14 Feb. 1885
 
Notes:
D'Oench withdrew after playing five games, all of which he lost. Different odds were used in alternate games between the same players, at least for some differences between odds classes. In order to coerce my rating program to apply the right odds, I have set up more classes. In cases where only one game was played in a pairing (as for example in the 5 games played by D'Oench), it is not clear which of the two possible handicaps was used, so I have compromised between the two possibilities. This will create a slight inaccuracy.
