Event table notes

Event data
Name: International Chess Congress Grand Tournament
Place: Paris
Start date: 4 June 1867
End date: 11 July 1867
 
Notes:
All-play-all with 2 games per pairing, draws not counted in official score, but not replayed. Di Felice has 'Mingrelia of Dadian, Andrey' [sic] instead of d'André. There are two quite different versions of the crosstable, both producing the same official scores (but not totals of games actually played): Gaige and Di Felice give one, Feenstra Kuiper and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi give the other. There are discrepancies in the scores themselves and in which games were won by default. The report in the Illustrated London News on July 27, 1867 and games subsequently appearing in the Illustrated London News are consistent with the crosstable of Feenstra Kuiper. ChessBase gives all games and again the results are consistent with Feenstra Kuiper, which I therefore take to be correct. The starting date is given as 1 June 1867 in the Illustrated London News of 8 June 1867 (p.586), but at that point only 10 players had entered.
