Event table notes

Event data
Name: 2nd British Chess Federation Congress - Championship
Place: Southport
Start date: 14 Aug. 1905
End date: 26 Aug. 1905
 
Notes:
Sergeant (p.245) says Ward was second with 7.5 points, but this comes from an incorrect total in the crosstable (p.325). Feenstra Kuiper, Gaige and Di Felice say Ward got 7 points, as also indicated by the game-by-game results in Sergeant's crosstable.
