Event table notes

Event data
Name: 3rd Counties Chess Association Meeting - 2nd Class
Place: Malvern
Start date: 5 Aug. 1872
End date: Aug. 1872
 
Notes:
Finlinson lost to Archdall, Isaacs and Miss Rudge, beat Empson and then withdrew, forfeiting the rest of his games. We do not count the forfeited games for rating purposes. The totals given in the Chess Player's Chronicle add up to half a point less than they should for a 10-player single-round all-play-all, and it is not clear to whom the extra half point belongs. I will (rather arbitrarily) guess that Breese had 2.5 points, rather than the 2 reported (but one of these was a forfeit win, of course). If this is wrong, a slight error will result. I am not sure whether it was H.M. Isaacs of Bristol or Lister Isaac of Worcester at this event. The Westminster Papers say that Finlinson won the second class tournament, but in fact he won the handicap tournament, not the second class tournament.
