Event data
Name: Vienna Championship
Place: Vienna
Start date: 31 Mar. 1875
End date: May 1875
 
Notes:
Di Felice has Johann Nepomuk Berger in this event, but according to the Österreichische Schachzeitung, it was Josef Berger. Each pairing was apparently for the best of three games, a half point in the official scoring going to each player if they were even after 3 games. If one player won the first two games, the third was not played. Di Felice shows many games as actually played that were not according to the report in the Österreichische Schachzeitung, which indicates that: Berger forfeited two games to von Feyerfeil, Fleissig and Schwarz; Schwarz forfeited two games to Gelbfuhs and his second game to Meitner (after Meitner won the first); and von Feyerfeil forfeited his third game to Meitner (after a win each).
