Played on Saturday, 9th January 1886, at Leeds Chess Club.

 

Wakefield had chosen to play over nine boards.  Leeds won the toss, and took white on the odd-numbered boards for the first game at each board.  Play began at 4 p.m., which is surprisingly late by today’s standards for such matches.  Proceedings were adjourned at 6.00 p.m., then resumed at 6.30 p.m., finally concluding at 9.30 p.m. when the one unfinished game was adjudicated.
