All problems were published between 1886-04-10 and 1886-09-28. A solving tourney was held at the same time.

54 problems were received of which 19 were found faulty. The judges scored problems from 1 to 10, independently. The sum of their scores determined the order of the awards.


An open letter from O. Meisling was printed in some publications in early 1889 stating that he had not received his prize from the tourney. (e.g. Deutsche Schachzeitung 44/2 (Feb., 1889), p. 63.) In Chess Monthly, v. 10, p. 160 (Feb., 1889) he additionally warned against taking part in Swedish tournaments.
