Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manhattan Club Tourney
Place: New York
Start date: 1886
End date: 10 Apr. 1886
 
Notes:
There is no indication in Gaige, Di Felice or the British Chess Magazine that this was a handicap tournament, but it was according to the Brooklyn Chess Chronicle of 15 Nov. 1885 (reproduced by Winter in CN 6450), where the odds are specified. Ludwig Silberman withdrew before finishing, but won a game against John S. Ryan. Jacob Steinhardt was also listed amongst the competitors in the Brooklyn Chess Chronicle, but must have withdrawn, since he does not appear in Gaige's crosstable. Di Felice calls it the '9th Manhattan Chess Club championship' but according to the British Chess Magazine, that was a different event later in the year, won by Hanham.
