Event table notes

Event data
Name: Montreal Club Tournament
Place: Montreal
Start date: Nov. 1889
End date: May 1890
 
Notes:
The report in the Quebec Morning Chronicle gives only the scores of the top 5 players, but these scores are all out of 27 games, so I am guessing that it was a 28-player single-round all-play-all. The winner's name is given as Robert Shaw, but presumably this is an error for Robert Short.
