Event data
Name: Montreal Club Handicap Tournament
Place: Montreal
Start date: 1 Dec. 1894
End date: Apr. 1895
 
Notes:
This was a 21-player all-play-all. Hilbert lists scores for the top 6 finishers, but only gives the odds class for Pollock, Short and Marshall. The latter two were actually in the 'First Class', but Pollock, as the only Master in the tournament, had to give first class players pawn and two moves.
