Event table notes

Event data
Name: 11th Canadian Championship
Place: Montreal
Start date: 28 Dec. 1882
End date: 6 Jan. 1883
 
Notes:
Yanofsky lists only 5 players, but badly garbles both participant names and scores. Howe and Ascher played a game to break the tie, which was drawn, and were then asked to player another game, but in the end Ascher refused and the championship title was given to Howe. The main event finished 6 Jan. 1883. I am not sure when the drawn play-off game was played, but certainly before 17 Feb. 1883.
