Event table notes

Event data
Name: 3rd Counties Chess Association Meeting - 1st Class
Place: Malvern
Start date: 5 Aug. 1872
End date: Aug. 1872
 
Notes:
Gaige has 2 inconsistencies in his crosstable where Rowley-Scott is marked as a default loss by Scott but a genuine win by Rowley and Coker-Braithwaite is marked as a default loss by Braithwaite but a genuine win by Coker. Di Felice gives both as defaults, as does the report in the Chess Player's Chronicle. Gaige has 'Thomson' in this event; Di Felice has 'Thomson, John Graham'; Staunton in the Illustrated London News has 'Thompson'.
