Event data
Place: Saint Petersburg
Start date: 1859
End date: Nov. 1859
 
Notes:
According to the Dec. 1859 issue of Shakhmatniy Listok, p.337 (sent to me by Geert Van der Wulp), this match was played immediately after Urusov's visit to Warsaw to play Petrov, and therefore either at the end of October or in November 1859. I am guessing, that it finished in November 1859.
