Event table notes

Event data
Name: New York Club Tournament
Place: New York
Start date: 8 Jan. 1866
End date: 24 Feb. 1866
 
Notes:
This tournament was organized into 3 classes, each of which played amongst themselves without handicaps, and the winners of the 3 classes were then to compete with appropriate odds for the first prize. The Chess World and the New York Clipper say that there were 18 participants, though the report in the Chess World mentions 19 (no results are given for 'Shultz'). According to van Winsen, there were originally to be 20 players, but T.H. Worrall could not come, so he defaulted to Barnett in the first round. Delmar withdrew after a -1=1 result against Warner. Belcher withdrew after winning against Johnston. Two wins were to be required in each pairing but that was extended to 3 for Mackenzie's and Thompson's encounters in the first class. The winner of the 3rd class was Arietta, who withdrew, leaving Mackenzie to play aginst Graves, the winner of the 2nd class. Mackenzie won both games, giving Knight odds and Pawn and Two Move odds alternately. The Illustrated London News of 10 Feb. 1866 (p.147) gives 'Dr. Burnett' in error. The Chess World of Mar. 1866 (p.27) gives 'Gerard' against 'Martineau' instead of 'Graves' against 'Martinez'. The Chess World of Mar. 1866 (p.27) also gives results in the second class of Dill-Ward +2-0=0 and Graves-Dill +1-0=0, while van Winsen gives +2-1=0 and +2-0=0, respectively. The complete result tree is given by van Winsen, though he mistakenly lists Belcher-Johnston in the second class instead of the first.
