Event table notes

Event data
Name: 2nd British Chess Association Congress - Master Tourney
Place: London
Start date: 12 July 1886
End date: 29 July 1886
 
Notes:
The result of the play-off for 3rd and 4th places (+0-0=2) between Taubenhaus and Gunsberg is given in the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News of 7 Aug. 1886, as well as by Sergeant (p.201). Urcan gives a win by Hanham over Mackenzie in his book on Albin (p.57) from the New York Times and attributes it to this event, but all the crosstables in other sources show a win by Mackenzie over Hanham here.
