Walker - Amant (1836)
Compiled by MissScarlett
--*--

A series of games played at the Westminster CC in 1836 upon St. Amant's visit to London. Nine games apparently took place, but only six game scores are known.

Described by de Saint-Amant in a letter to Le Palamède (1836, pp.186-191) dated 10 June 1836, so the games were played earlier than this. These games seem not to have comprised a formal match, but were taken as a serious challenge. (1)

The Jay Whitehouse Database dates all games to May.
