Event table notes

Event data
Name: City of London Club Handicap
Place: London, England
Start date: Oct. 1874
End date: Mar. 1875
 
Notes:
This was a 64-player knockout handicap, 2 wins required to win a round, in which the 32 losers in the first round went on to compete for third and fourth prizes, in a separate knockout sequence. Results for the main sequence, competing for first and second prizes are almost complete here. In some cases, where I only know which player won, I record the result as 1-0. Some of the results I obtained from the City of London Chess Magazine, but Tim Harding has provided the rest.
