Place: Graz
Start date: 15 Sep. 1870
End date: 24 Sep. 1870
 
Notes:
14-player, double-round all-play-all tournament. Feenstra Kuiper (in Hundert Jahre Schachzweikämpfe) and Di Felice give only total scores for each player. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi fills in a handful of crosstable entries as well as giving total scores. The scores given add to 181, whereas if all games were played the total would be 182, so one game was not played. We have no idea which, so I will just accept this as a minor inaccuracy.
