Event table notes

Event data
Name: New Orleans Chess, Checker and Whist Club Tournament
Place: New Orleans
Start date: Aug. 1900
End date: 15 Mar. 1901
 
Notes:
This was a 34-player all-play-all, and although players were assigned to classes, this was only to assign certain prizes to players who did well for their class; no odds were given. The scores given in the New Orleans Daily Picayune of 17 Mar. 1901 total to 509, not 528, as would be the case for a full crosstable. Some games (19) clearly were not played, but it is not indicated which. I guess at a reasonable result here by supposing that each of the last 19 players defauted against the player above them in the ordered final score list. Also, draws were to be replayed once, so many draws will not be accounted for here in the official scores. Both effects will tend to make the ratings of the lower players even lower than they should be, and the ratings of the higher players higher than they should be. The names of some of the players are not very clear in the digitized newspaper page used (e.g. 'Mus, P.'?).
