The Era of 18 Nov. 1860 (p.7) says that though Kipping 'conducted his games with great skill', Kolisch 'carried the victory'. The issue of 25 Nov. 1860 (p.6) says 'Mr. Kipping, with whom he [Kolisch] played several games, had to yield to Mr. Kolisch's superior powers in every instance. I take this to mean that Kolisch won every game, but since the number of games is not stated, I record this as a soft result of 1-0 for Kolisch.
