Event table notes

Event data
Name: Llandudno Handicap Tournament - Section A
Place: Llandudno
Start date: 4 Jan. 1897
End date: 12 Jan. 1897
 
Notes:
Forster says only that Gunston beat Lister in the tie-break. I presume that this was a single game and that Gunston gave Lister knight odds, as appropriate for the classes to which they were assigned in the tournament.
