Event table notes

Event data
Name: 5th Counties Chess Association Meeting - 2nd Class
Place: Birmingham
Start date: 3 Aug. 1874
End date: 7 Aug. 1874
 
Notes:
The Chess Player's Chronicle of Aug. 1874 (supplement p.1) says that Price 'resigned', i.e., withdrew early, so his score 1/12 should not be counted. One suspects that something similar happened to de Soyres (0.5/12), who was one of the strongest players in the event. I exclude these two scores.
