Event data
Name: 1st Netherland Chess Federation Tourney
Place: The Hague
Start date: Aug. 1873
End date: Aug. 1873
 
Notes:
The 'B.W. Blijdenstein' at this event is the 3rd player of that name, after his father and grandfather. Gaige does not give the play-off matches; Fiala gives only the play-off between Gifford and Blijdenstein; Di Felice gives both. Di Felice gives 'Meijer, Henrik Diderik Bernhard' at this event (who played in Dutch tournaments from the 1890s) which is possible, but since it is unclear I have assumed that this 'H. Meijers' is a different player. Fiala is inconsistent with the initials of the player named 'Blanck'. Sometimes he gives 'Blanck, E.' and sometimes 'Blank, J.P.'. Both Gaige and Di Felice give E. Blanck.
