Event table notes

Event data
Name: Melbourne Handicap Challenge Cup Tournament
Place: Melbourne
Start date: 11 May 1874
End date: July 1874
 
Notes:
This was a 16-player knockout tournament, with 3 games per pairing. The 16th player, Black, 'resigned' to Lulman in the first round without playing, so he is not included here. The last result I found for the Stephen-Colville match in the first round gives +2-1=1 for Stephen, who then appears in the next round, so I will guess that it finished +3-1=1. In the second round, Henderson forfeited to Hart without playing, and in the third round, Hart forfeited to Stephen without playing.
