Event table notes

Event data
Place: New York
Start date: 11 Apr. 1892
End date: 1892
The start date of 11 Apr. 1892 comes from the International Chess Magazine (vol.7, p.358, see Russell's web article), written before the event, so only a projected start date. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 20 Oct. 1895 (p.5) first gives the score as 7-4 for Lipschutz and the year as 1891, but then later gives +7-4=7 for Lipschutz and the year as 1892.
