Event table notes

Event data
Name: Sheffield Athenaeum Chess Club Handicap Tournament
Place: Sheffield
Start date: 1870
End date: Feb. 1870
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was a 24-player (Staunton says 23, but scores are out of 23, so probably 24 players) single-round all-play-all handicap tournament, with players in 5 classes. The odds between the various classes are not specified, but I am guessing that 2nd class gave 3rd Pawn and Move (which would be typical). Only results for the top three players are given by Staunton, including the play-off.
