Event data

Place: New York

End date: 18 Oct. 1876
 
Notes:
21 players started but some did not play all their games. Di Felice and van Winsen have complete crosstables of all 21 players, and Di Felice indicates that draws were not replayed but did not count in the official score; van Winsen appears to count them. Spinrad gives numbers of wins, losses and draws for some of the players, all consistent with Di Felice's crosstable. The Illustrated London News of 16 Dec. 1876 (p.590) gives a letter from Francis M. Roser saying he withdrew on 3 Oct. 1876 after playing seven games, winning from Dill, Grutter, Wernich, Marr, Orchard and Lissner, and losing only to Limbeck. Di Felice apparently missed the Roser - Gruetter game, included by van Winsen. There are a number of other discrepancies in the two crosstables. Di Felice shows a win for both Ryan and Wernich in their pairing; van Winsen shows it as a win for Wernich. Van Winsen shows wins for Barid over Dwyer, Fowler over Grütter, Ryan over Williams, Baird over Marr and Dwyer over Marr, whereas Di Felice shows all of these as unplayed. I have adopted van Winsen's crosstable. Di Felice has 'McCutcheon, J.L.' at this event; van Winsen has 'E. McCutcheon'. Hilbert says that Orchard 'had to return home after playing only two-thirds of his games'. Which games he defaulted are not indicated and are counted as played here, until further information is obtained.
