Event data
Name: City of London Club Handicap - Consolation Tournament Final Pool
Place: London
Start date: 1871
End date: 9 June 1871
 
Notes:
According to Forster, Fenton won against both Blunt and van der Velde by winning two games, but we don't know whether these results were +2-1 or +2-0 or if there were draws, so I am just recording them as +1-0 as the best approximation without weighting the results too heavily.
