Event data
Place: Boston, Massachusetts
Start date: 1846
End date: 1846
Part of a 5-part match in which Hammond played 5 games at each of various odds: even, Pawn and move, Pawn and two moves, Knight and Rook. We only have the total score of 19-6 for Hammond. For rating purposes the breakdown does not make a difference, so I simply guess that the only games Hammond lost were the 5 Rook odds games and one of the Knight odds games.
