Event table notes

Event data
Name: West Yorkshire Chess Association - Tournament 1
Place: Leeds
Start date: 26 May 1866
End date: 26 May 1866
 
Notes:
An 8-player knockout, which I presume to have been for a single win in each pairing, as all games were played in a single day. D. Marsden was paired against J. Watkinson in the first round, but 'declined to play'. H.L. Mort played Taylor in the first round, but after a draw in the first game, left the second game unfinished. Watkinson played Skipworth in the second round, but left the game unfinished.
