Event table notes

Event data
Name: 2nd North German Chess Congress
Place: Hamburg
Start date: 24 July 1869
End date: 2 Aug. 1869
 
Notes:
6-player, single-round all-play-all, with draws not counting and replayed. Di Felice indicates a replayed draw between Anderssen and Zukertort, which is not indicated by Gaige or La Grande Storia degli Scacchi. Staunton in the Illustrated London News does not have the Anderssen-Zukertort draw but does indicate that a draw occurred between Paulsen and Schallopp. I will take both as having occurred. Gaige also omits the play-off. Di Felice gives starting date as 24 July; La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives starting date as 25 July.
