Event table notes

Event data
Name: Grand tournoi de la Régence
Place: Paris
Start date: 1865
End date: 3 Apr. 1865
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was a knockout handicap tournament, lasting several months. The three finalists were Rosenthal, Mortimer and Duclos, and they were to play off for the first prize. Initially, Duclos best Rosenthal, Mortimer beat Duclos and Rosenthal beat Mortimer, so it was still tied. Le Palamède Français of Apr. 1865 suggests that there were more games between Mortimer and the others with the same result, but how many and with what score is not clear so I leave these as 1-0 results. Rosenthal and Duclos eventually played five games with result +2-1=2 for Rosenthal, who thus won the event.
