Event data
Name: Mechanic's Institute Tournament - First Class
Place: San Francisco
Start date: 1895
End date: 14 Nov. 1895
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. The reports in the 9 Nov. 1895 and 16 Nov. 1895 issues of the San Francisco Call detail the results of the final pairings Thompson-Samuels and Quiroga-Palmer. In each case it was a match for the first to win 2 games. The nature of the full tournament is not specified. An earlier tournament in the same year was a double-round all-play-all, so this one seems to have had a different structure. The report says that Thompson won first prize, but that Quiroga and Samuels still had to play off for second prize. The date of the final game between Quiroga and Palmer is given as 14 Nov. 1895 ('on Thursday night'), but the tournament was not entirely finished, at least because of the play-off match.
