Sunnucks gives result as 9-4 for Lasker; Edgar gives +7-2 for Lasker; Feenstra Kuiper, Hannak, Lasker's Manual of Chess, Hooper and Whyld and Di Felice give +7-2=3 for Lasker and Elo gives 8.5-3.5, which is consistent with the latter result. Hooper and Whyld give the location as London in their first edition, but correct it to Liverpool in the second edition; Giffen gives London; Edgar, Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice give Liverpool.
