Name: London Tournament
Place: London
Start date: 26 Apr. 1883
End date: 23 June 1883
 
Notes:
14-player, double-round all-play-all tournament. In each pairing of each round, one or two draws did not count before a decisive game; a third draw, however, would count as a half point. Neither Sergeant, Gaige, Feenstra Kuiper nor La Grande Storia degli Scacchi indicate the uncounted draws in the crosstable; Di Felice gives the uncounted draws as well (though he uses an unexplained symbol ':', it is clear that it must mean 2 uncounted draws, especially since the total number of games, including 11 defaulted games and 1 unplayed game, by this reckoning matches the total of 256 games given by Feenstra Kuiper on p.205). Gaige indicates the unplayed game between Blackburne and Rosenthal but not the 11 defaulted games by Skipworth; La Grande Storia degli Scacchi indicates neither, thus giving just the official results.
