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. 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. Although Gaige cites the tournament book by Féry d'Esclands, it is the crosstable of Feenstra Kuiper that matches the crosstable in the tournament book (p.lxxix). There are discrepancies in the scores themselves and in which games were won by default. The tournament book is definitive, giving all the games, though the crosstable there has three errors, easily resolvable from the listings of results and games in the rest of the book (most notably, the crosstable indicates in one place +0-1=1 for Steinitz against Neumann, but +1-1=0 in another; the former is correct). Löwenthal discusses the erroneous reporting of scores in the Chess Player's Magazine of 1 Aug. 1867 (pp.229-230). 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. The tournament book makes it clear that the first games were played on 4 June 1867.
