Event table notes

Event data
Name: Sheffield Athenaeum Club Tournament
Place: Sheffield
Start date: 1865
End date: July 1865
 
Notes:
This was a handicap knock-out tournament with 2 wins required to win each pairing. The Chess Player's Magazine and the Chess World have a mysterious result of 'Davy 0' in round 3 with no opponent listed, but the report in the Era shows Davy 2 - W. Cockayne 0. The tournament was stated to be 'recently terminated' in the Aug. 1865 issue of the Chess Player's Magazine, and the Chess World of Aug. 1865 (p.188) says it had 'recently terminated, after a duration of many months', so I guess that it ended in July 1865 and began earlier in that year. Was it Mort, Moet or Meöt at this event? The Chess Player's Magazine of Aug. 1865 (p.251) has 'Moet' throughout, and the Chess World of Aug. 1865 (p.188) has the same report also with 'Moet' (both are based on the same report sent by G.B. Cocking of the Sheffield Club). Steve Mann identifies the player as 'Joseph Louis Meöt de Monmusard'. However, the Chess World of Aug. 1865 (p.176) and Sep. 1865 (p.211) have games between Mort and Bennett from this event, and the Era of 30 Jul. 1865 (p.6) has Mort throughout.
