Event table notes

Event data
Name: International Chess Congress - Tournoi de la Régence
Place: Paris
Start date: July 1867
End date: Sep. 1867
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. Even the book of the Paris Congress by Féry d'Esclands does not contain full results, saying (p.308) that the full collection of games does not exist. It appears to have been a double-round all-play-all. There were originally eleven participants, but Lequesne never played, so only ten appear in the tournament book. Hoffer seems to have been dropped from the list by the end - the 15 Nov. 1867 issue of La Stratégie (p.267) lists only nine players (without Hoffer), and the 15 Sep. 1867 issue lists scores for Czarnowski and Preti with remaining games to play that are consistent with one player having withdrawn. Only a very incomplete crosstable can be constructed with the 22 games appearing in the tournament book, but from the results for Czarnowski and Preti given in La Stratégie, and assuming Hoffer was not one of their opponents, we can reconstruct further scores of Czarnowski, at least. Preti had a draw, and we don't know against whom, but perhaps we can guess that it was against Féry d'Esclands, who came third. Here, I record only the results of pairings in which we know the results of both games (with a bit of guesswork for Preti). Czarnowski won first prize, Preti second, and Féry d'Esclands won third but donated his prize to the victor of a match between the first two prize winners. La Stratégie (15 Jan. 1868, p.21) and Bell's Life in London (10 Oct. 1868, p.10) give a single win by Fery d'Esclands over Czarnowski.
