Notes:
Gaige indicates that Anderssen won the play-off with Mieses but does not give the play-off score; Di Felice and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi give the play-off score as 1-0. Feenstra Kuiper just gives total scores for each player, but they are consistent if they include the 1-0 play-off result.
