Event table notes

Event data
Name: Adelaide Tournament
Place: Adelaide
Start date: 1878
End date: 1878
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was a 14-player single-round all-play-all tournament. There is no mention of it being a handicap event, so I presume it was not. The result for just the four top scorers is given in the 1 Dec. 1878 issue of the Chess Player's Chronicle (pp.284-285), so it must have finished in Nov. 1878 or earlier. There was to be a series of play-off matches amongst these four players.
