Event data
Name: 2nd Free Tournament
Place: New York
Start date: June 1860
End date: Aug. 1860
 
Notes:
Partial results available. 32-player knockout tournament. Announced to start June 2, but Hilbert suggests that it may have started later, as 2nd round pairings weren't announced till June 30. Only the score of the final is known. All the round one winners are known, but not who they played, and the 2nd, 3rd and 4th round pairings and winners are known, but except for the final between Leonard and Barnett, neither the odds nor the actual scores are known. Some individual games can be found, such as Brisbane-Hazeltine (1-0) in the Spirit of the Times of 7 Jul. 1860, and Leonard-Lecour (1-0) in the 14 Jul. 1860 issue.
