Event table notes

Event data
Name: 6th New Orleans Chess, Checkers and Whist Club Tournament
Place: New Orleans
Start date: 1885
End date: 22 Aug. 1885
 
Notes:
Only results for the top three scorers is available. This was a 10-player double-round all-play-all tournament. The other 7 players were M.F. Factum, F.C. Kaczoroski, L.E. Lyons, James G. Blanchard, E.J. Blanchard, E.J. Hamilton and O.M. Tennison. The Newark Sunday Call of 13 Sep. 1885 mistakenly says this was a tournament of the New Albany Club, but corrects this in the 20 Sep. 1885 issue. The Nashville Union of 7 June 1885 gives a second round game, so presumably the tournament began in late May or at the beginning of June.
