Event table notes

Event data
Name: 1st German Chess Federation Tournament
Place: Leipzig
Start date: 14 July 1878
End date: 20 July 1879
 
Notes:
Di Felice indicates that the win by Englisch over Wemmers was won by default; Gaige indicates that it was genuinely played. Feenstra Kuiper, in Hundert Jahre Schachzweikämpfe, agrees with Di Felice (though each defaulted game are here indicated in only 1 of its two locations in the crosstable). For the other defaulted games, these three sources agree. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives only official results, with no indication of which games were defaulted.
