Notes:
The scores given by Hilbert do not add up to the correct total for a double-round all-play-all. Probably the half points were draws which were not counted and replayed. I am giving the whole number scores for the crosstable, which do add up to the correct total, and recording separately (as match results to fit my formatting) two extra draws Edwards-Smith and Ash-Lipman, though these might have been betwen the opposite pairings. Hilbert does not specify exact dates, but the report of the results was given at a dinner on 21 May 1911, so I am guessing that the tournament finished that month.
