Event table notes

Event data
Name: School of Arts Handicap Tournament
Place: Sydney
Start date: Feb. 1896
End date: Apr. 1896
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was a 24-player single round all-play-all with players in five classes. The Australian Chess Annual of 1896 gives the results of the three prize winners. The Sydney Morning Herald of 4 Apr. 1896 (p.6) gives scores to date, before the tournament had finished. I give the results of players who had finished all their 23 games at that point.
