Event table notes

Event data
Name: Kling's Coffee House Tournament
Place: London
Start date: Apr. 1855
End date: May 1855
 
Notes:
This was an 8-player knockout tournament. Spinrad and the 'La Grande Storia degli Scacchi' web site give Barnes-Simons as 4-2, whereas Di Felice gives +4-0=2. The former agress with the report in the 1855 Chess Player's Chronicle. Spinrad gives a match between Brien and Zytogorski, but the result is the same as their result in this tournament, so I presume it was not a separate match. Sergeant's 'A Century of British Chess' also gives the Brien-Zytogorski result as a separate match (p.91) as well as the Zytogorski-Green result (p.94). The Chess Player's Chronicle gives the games of Zytogorski-Brien and Zytogorski-Barnes as match results without mentioning the tournament, but they surely belong to the tournament. The Era of 3 Jun. 1855 (p.12) gives the result of Zytogorski-Barnes as 4-2, while the Chess Player's Chronicle (1855, p.205) gives 4-1 for Zytogorski.
