Notes:
This was a 32-player handicap tournament. The match results can all be reconstructed, but I have not been able to find the odds class for three of the players (Jamieson, Trowell, and McCarthy) so I cannot rate their results. The handicapping system was a standard one in which players gave Pawn and Move odds to players one class below them, Pawn and Two Moves to players two classes below them and a Knight to players three classes below them. After the first round, there were essentially two separate knock-out tournaments, one amongst the first round winners, and one amongst the first round losers. The four players coming out on top in the first sub-tournament (Burns, Ellis, Sedgefield, P.D. Phillips) got the first four prizes, while the top two in the second sub-tournament (Fleming, Pirani) got 5th and 6th prizes. Three wins were required to win an individual match. In round 2, Herz withdrew after losing a single game with Goldsmith. Also Monash withdrew before playing any games in his second round match with Pirani. The results of the three players for whom I don't know the odds class were: Cross-Jamieson +3-0=1, Hammond-Trowell +3-1=1 and Daniell-McCarthy +3-1=1 in round 1 and Hornby-Jamieson +3-0=0, Targett-Trowell +3-1=0 and Faussett-McCarthy +3-1=0 in round 2.
