Event table notes

Event data
Name: Davos Tournament
Place: Davos
Start date: Feb. 1884
End date: 9 Mar. 1884
 
Notes:
The scores reported by Gorodin for the top 10 finishers are not possible with a single-round all-play-all of 15 players, given that Flad forfeited his last three games, having a perfect score from the 11 games he played. The top 10 should have played 45 games amongst themselves, and 50 games against the remaining 5 players for a total of 45+50=95 games. Flad forfeited 3 games, so the total number of games actually played by the top 10 should have been 92, but the scores given for them total to 94. Something is wrong. At the risk of a slight innaccuracy, I will guess that the players finishing 7th to 10th got 6 points each, rather than the 7 stated by Gorodin. Then the total score of the top 10 is 90, which is still feasible.
