Event table notes

Event data
Name: Mechanics Institute Tournament
Place: San Francisco
Start date:
End date: Jan. 1909
 
Notes:
This is stated to be a 17-player tournament, but scores are given for only 16 players. The scores provided add up to 133, rather than 136, as it should be for a single-round 17-player all-play-all. However, there are some other oddities to the list of scores. Legler is listed with +12-4=1 and Sternberg with +8-9=0, which in both cases indicates 17 games instead of 16. Also, Seager is listed after Spaulding, but with a score of +6-9=1, compared to Spaulding's +6-10=0, so Seager should be above, if the scores are correct. I will use the totals as listed, suggesting that there is a 17th player with a score of 3, and ignoring the descrepancies. The consequent errors should be small.
