Event data
Name: Cafe International Tournament
Place: New York
Start date: 22 Oct. 1874
End date: 30 Jan. 1875
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was an all-play-all with about 36 players, though only 26 or 27 took an active part, and 2 games were to be played per pairing in principle, but many games were not played. Total scores for the top 5 players (Mason, Delmar, Perrin, Alberoni, Dill) are given by van Winsen and the Westminster Papers, but they played different numbers of games and which opponents were actually played by each is not indicated. So I cannot use these totals for rating purposes. However, I am including results of individual pairings where I have the result of both games (only Mason-Perrin so far).
