Event table notes

Event data
Place: Brussels
Start date: Aug. 1853
End date: Aug. 1853
 
Notes:
The Illustrated London News of 3 Sept. 1853 (p.194) gives a win by Staunton (without giving odds) over de Rives in Belgium 'one of several just played', so I presume these games were played in Aug. 1853. I do not know whether this was considered a formal match. The Illustrated London News also gives 2 other games between these players, but at odds of Pawn and two moves (+1-0=1 for Staunton), and the Chess Player's Chronicle also gives 4 games at Pawn and two moves (+2-2=0 for Staunton).
