Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manhattan Club - Columbia Club Match (Round 2)
Place: New York
Start date: 29 June 1888
End date: 29 June 1888
 
Notes:
The results listed in the Columbia Chess Chronicle are not very clear. It seems that the Manhattan players played white on all boards in this round, so when the result is listed as a win for white, we can assume the Manhattan player won. There is a discrepancy regarding the Davidson-Sternberg game. On p.7, it is stated that the game was adjudicated as a draw, but where the game is given on p.17, it is stated that it 'was adjudicated against Mr. Sternberg.' I take the latter to be correct. The game Ryan-Friedewald, given on p.19 is cut off mid-game (at least in the Google Books copy of this volume), so I cannot determine who won. I am guessing, however, that Ryan won. The decisions about the Davidson-Sternberg game and the Ryan-Friedewald game result in a 12-3 victory for the Manhattan. The report on p.212 of the 30 June 1888 issue of the Columbia Chess Chronicle gives the result of this second round as 19-3 for Manhattan, which is clearly not correct as there were only 15 games played. The simplest interpretation is that this should have been 12-3.
