Event table notes

Event data
Name: 2nd Oxford - Cambridge University Match
Place: London
Start date: 27 Mar. 1874
End date: 27 Mar. 1874
 
Notes:
Nicholson won +3-1 against Tracey, but the official score was +2-1 as only 3 games counted. I rate the extra game since it was played. The Illustrated London News of 4 Apr. 1874 (p.331) shows the result of the Meredith-Ogden match as +1-2 for Meredith; the Chess Player's Chronicle of Apr. 1874 (p.57) gives +0-2 for Meredith. Sergeant follows the Chess Player's Chronicle. I don't know which is correct but will follow Sergeant.
