Event table notes

Event data
Place: Versailles
Start date: June 1837
End date: June 1837
Fournier was blind; de la Bourdonnais played blindfold. Two games were played, this one at rook odds and the other even (recorded separately here). The encounter was anticipated in the 15 June 1837 issue of Le Palamède and reported in the 15 July 1837 issue. I guess that it took place in June.
