Event table notes

Event data
Name: 5th West German Chess Congress
Place: Elberfeld
Start date: 27 Aug. 1865
End date: 29 Aug. 1865
 
Notes:
Single-round all-play-all, but first draws were replayed. This occurred between Hoing and Knorre who played two draws. Di Felice indicates that the first draw did not count in the score (which makes sense if additional games were not to advantage some players) but Gaige and Feenstra Kuiper give totals counting both games. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives only one draw between Hoing and Knorre, which would be the official result, but here we score all games played. Di Felice gives finishing date Aug. 29; La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives finishing date 28 Aug.
