Todo: 1860-1869

Note: Incompletely know tourneys are now posted, tagged with ‘Incomplete’. Recent entries do not necessarily have entries here anymore, but instead contain a special section that describes known shortcomings.

Some tourneys from this period have already been published, but are not completely known and may benefit from additional information or research:

Other tourneys are likely to require access to original sources:

  • Belfast Weekly Whig, 1863. Not known. (This is probably the weekly edition of Northern Whig, publ. Saturdays. See notice in The Northern Whig on 1862-03-22, that the Weekly N. W. has set apart a column for chess. The contents of the column is frequently summarized in Northern Whig: on February 6, 1863, a notice on p. [2] says that tomorrow’s issue of Weekly Northern Whig will contain problem tourney-related information.)

  • Brooklyn Standard, 1861. Only requirements known so far. (Brooklyn Standard seems to have been a weekly paper, while Brooklyn Daily Standard was a daily.)

  • Svetozor, 1869. (mentioned in Neue Berliner Sz, v. 6, p. 163.) #3. Only open to Bohemian competitors. Judged by the competitors themselves.

  • Wilke’s Spirit of the Times, 1868? Some requirements are known, but it is not clear if they only were suggestions, or if they were actually used for a tournament.
