Event data
Name: British Chess Club Triangular Tournament
Place: London
Start date: 1886
End date: Nov. 1886
 
Notes:
This was a three-player all-play-all tournament with each pairing to be decided by the first to win 7 games. The last (partial) scores reported (in the Morning Post of 15 Nov. 1886, p.2) are Mortimer-Donisthorpe +6-6, Mortimer-'Reeve-Farrow' +6-4, and Donisthorpe-'Reeve-Farrow' +2-3. I am guessing that 'Reeve-Farrow' is H.A. Reeves, who sometimes used the pseudonym 'Dr. Farrow'. The British Chess Magazine of Dec. 1886 (p.476) gives Mortimer-Donisthorpe as +6-6=6, so the Morning Post may simply not have reported draws. The British Chess Magazine also has +2-2 for Donisthorpe-'Reeve-Farrow' but the Morning Post seems to have a later score there.
