Event table notes

Event data
Name: Saint Petersburg National Tournament
Place: Saint Petersburg
Start date: 22 Dec. 1880
End date: 11 Jan. 1881
 
Notes:
Popovsky's crosstable is the one from Shakhmatny Listok. It indicates that Schiffers defaulted both games against Klements, Beskrovny defaulted both games against Alapin and one game against Chigorin, and Urzhumtsev defaulted both games against Chigorin and Klements, and one game against Alapin. The crosstable gives no information about Beskrovny's result against Maksimov, nor Miasnikov's results against either Urzhumtsev or Maksimov. Either they were unplayed and scored 0 for both players, or these results are unkonwn. Di Felice gives the play-off as a match result.
