Event table notes

Event data
Place: Vienna
Start date: May 1851
End date: May 1851
Szén played these games on a visit to Vienna on his way to the London tournament. Since the London tournament started at the end of May, I am guessing that his visit to Vienna was earlier in May (though it may have been still earlier). It is only stated in the Schachzeitung that Hamppe won the majority, but since we have so few results for these players, I record a soft result of 1.5-0.5 for Hamppe, which indicates a majority but does not weight the score heavily.
