Compiled by Calli
--*--

Games were published in "The Transaction British Chess Association For the Years 1866 and 1867" by J. Loewenthal and G.W. Medley.

The congress took place in September 1867. It consisted of a Grand tournament, a "Scotch" tournament of eight playrs and a Handicap Tournament. For the first time in history, draws counted for 1/2 point.

The Grand Tournament had ten participants: Blackburne, De Vere, G. B. Fraser, Dr. J. C. Fraser, S. Hamel, G. MacDonnell, Neumann, Colonel Robertson, W. Spens, and Steinitz.

The entries for the Scotch tournament were Messrs. A. B. Baxter, C. R. Baxter, Dr. J. C. Fraser, G. B. Fraser, J. A. Gloag, Colonel Robertson, P. Scott, and W. C. Spens.

The Handicap Tournament consisted of sixteen players: Class I. Blackburne, De Vere, G. B. Fraser, MacDonnell, Neumann, and Steinitz to give Pawn and move to Class LI.; Pawn and two moves to Class III.; and Knight to Class IV. Class II.—Dr. Fraser to give Pawn and move to Class III., and Pawn and two moves to Class IV. Class III.—Messrs. C. M. Baxter, C. R. Baxter, Colonel Robertson, and W. C. Spens to give Pawn and move to Class IV. Class IV.—Messrs. L. Dumon, W. Keating, P. Scott, David Sime, and T. W. Thorns. The combatants were paired by lot in the usual manner, each contest being decided by one game, exclusive of draws, being played between the respective pairs.
