Event table notes

Event data
Name: Birmingham Club Tournament
Place: Birmingham
Start date: 6 Apr. 1865
End date: Dec. 1865
 
Notes:
This was a 16-player knock-out tournament with 4 wins needed to win each pairing, but in the first round Saunders conceded to Lloyd without playing a game and Sutton conceded to Earnshaw after one loss, and in the final, Best conceded when the score was +2-0=2 for Earnshaw. I am guessing that it was A.K. Sutton at this event, but it might have been G.F. Sutton.
