Event data
Name: Newtown Tournament
Place: Sydney
Start date: July 1871
End date: July 1871
 
Notes:
This was intended as a 5-player, double-round all-play-all tournament but only Crane played all his games, the other four missing one each. There are three possible pairings that could have been unplayed, and it is not clear which occurred. I am guessing that Gibbes-Sadler, and Sheehy-Abbott were the unplayed second games. If this is wrong, then a small error has been made, but will not affect ratings greatly.
