Reichhelm gives +2-1=0 for Gunsberg. Hilbert gives the same score as the result of games played on the first day of Gunsberg's visit to Philadelphia, 25 May 1889, but says that by the end of Gunsberg's 1-week visit they had played 2 more games, both draws, so the final result was +2-1=2 for Gunsberg.
