Notes:
Elo gives combined result of 1879 and 1880 matches as 16.5-6.5 for Chigorin, but this does not match other sources, which give +7-4=2 for Chigorin in the 1879 match and +7-1=3 for Chigorin in the 1880 match. The biography of Chigorin translated by Jimmy Adams gives 1880 as the year on p.29, but 1881 as the year on p.56.
