Event table notes

Event data
Place: London, England
Start date: Feb. 1861
End date: Feb. 1861
 
Notes:
The account in the Chess Player's Chronicle (1861, p.65), written as a discussion between fictional characters, but containing accurate information about actual events all the same, says that Kolisch had played Kennedy on even terms and had won all his games in London so far. I don't know how many games they played, so I record it as a soft result of 1-0 for Kolisch.
