Event table notes

Event data
Name: Birmingham Club Tournament
Place: Birmingham
Start date: 12 Apr. 1866
End date: Nov. 1866
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was a 20 player knockout tournament, but the report in the Nov. 1866 issue of the Chess Player's Magazine (pp.329-330) records the results while the third round of the main event was still in progress and before the Consolaton knock-out between the 15 losers in the first two rounds had been started. In each round, the first of a pair of players to win four games won, to progress to the next round. Halford won by default against C.T. Saunders in the first round. Best resigned against J.L. Smith when the score was +2-1=2 for Smith. Earnshaw won by default against Sutton in the second round. The only score given in the third round is Earnshaw-Halford +1-1=0, presumably a partial result. Kempson got a bye in the third round, since there was an odd number of players. Pairings for the Consolation event are given but without results. In this Consolation event, F. Hill got a bye. Although Warren is listed twice, my guess is that one of them is an error for Warner, who lost in the first round. It is not clear when the event finished, but since it was not finished in time for the Nov. 1866 issue of the Chess Player's Magazine, I presume it extended at least into Nov. 1866.
