Event table notes

Event data
Name: Darlinghurst Club Handicap Tournament
Place: Sydney
Start date: 31 July 1868
End date: 1869
 
Notes:
The 1 Aug. 1868 issue of the Sydney Mail (p.4) says that the tournament began 'last night'. The 7 Nov. issue gives almost complete scores with only three games remaining to be played. The 16 Jan. 1869 issue (p.5) says the tournament was not yet completed. Then, after a long hiatus, in which the usual chess column was did not appear, the final results are given in the 25 Dec. 1869 issue (p.2). The tournament must have finished sometime between 16 Jan. and 25 Dec., probably earlier in that period. The play-off for third was won by Pendrill, but no actual score is given. I assume 1-0.
