Event table notes

Event data
Name: Simpson's Divan Handicap
Place: London, England
Start date: 7 Apr. 1890
End date: May 1890
 
Notes:
The reports in the British Chess Magazine give a full crosstable (p.219) including the handicap class of each player, but the odds given between each class difference are not specified. Since there were four classes, I will assume that the traditional odds of Pawn and Move, Pawn and Two Moves and Knight were given between class differences of 1, 2 and 3, respectively. Loman's total score at the right of the crosstable is given as 5, whereas his individual game scores add up to 4.5. The end date is not given, but since the final report appeared in the June 1890 issue of British Chess Magazine, I presume that it finished in May.
