Name: City of London Club Handicap - Consolation Tournament
Place: London, England
Start date:
End date: 9 June 1871
 
Notes:
For some pairings we know only who won, not what the score of the mini-match was. In such cases, I have listed the result as +1-0 for the winner. This will introduce a small bias, if the score was really +2-1 or +1-0=1, for example. This was a 24-player knockout, but in the first round Shedlock beat W.T. Chappell by default, and no games appear to have been played. In the first round, Forster says H. Chappell beat Blunt, but then Blunt is the one who appears in the second round. Could this first round result have been reversed?
