Event data
Name: Brooklyn Club Tournament
Place: New York
Start date:
End date: Mar. 1875
The New York Spirit of the Times of 3 Apr. 1875 gives the scores of the top three players, but it is not clear how many players there were, nor how many games they played against each other. I am guessing that it was a 12-player double-round all-play-all. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 19 Feb. 1875 gives scores to date of the top 6 players at that time, saying: 'The others have lost more than they have won.' This suggests that the top 6 constituted about half the total number of players. Perrin's score is out of 19 games played, Horner's out of 20 and Barnett's out of 22. If indeed it was a 12-player double-round all-play-all, then Barnett played all his games, while Horner was missing 2, and Perrin was missing 3. I will guess that these unplayed games were against tail-enders.
