Event table notes

Event data
Name: 6th Western Chess Association Tournament (6th USA Open)
Place: Excelsior
Start date: 21 Aug. 1905
End date: 27 Aug. 1905
 
Notes:
Gaige indicates the score of the game Clark-M.M. Smith as '1?' for both players; Di Felice scores it as 1-0 for Clark. Di Felice has 'Clark, John Levi' at this event, but he often does not distinguish that player from 'James W. Clark' or 'J.H. Clark' active around the same places and times. I am guessing that it was actually James W. Clark who played in this event, since it seems to have been him who played in Excelsior in other years. Gaige has just 'Clark' at this event. Di Felice has 'Abbott, Joseph William' here, but he was English, so I am doubtful. It may have been James Abbott, who was president of the Chicago Chess and Checker Club around 1906 (Hilbert and Lahde, p.291).
