Event table notes

Event data
Name: Purssell's Chess Rooms Handicap
Place: London
Start date: Mar. 1859
End date: 3 May 1859
 
Notes:
Bird, Falkbeer and Hughes gave Pawn and Two Moves to all the other players and played even amongst themselves, and all other players played even amongst themselves. I am guessing that the Gover at this event was W.S. Gover. In the first round Williams did not appear to play Bird, who won by default.
