Event table notes

Event data
Name: 11th Norwegian Chess Congress - Championship
Place: Bergen
Start date: 4 July 1926
End date: 11 July 1926
 
Notes:
The play-off match for first prize was played partly in Bergen, immediately after the tournament, and partly in October in Oslo and Drammen. The first play-off game, in Bergen was a draw. Then an additional 4 games were to be played, 2 in Oslo and 2 in Drammen. The Oct.-Dec. 1926 issue of Norsk Schakblad (pp.111-113) gives three of these with dates 9 Oct. in Oslo, 10 Oct. in Oslo, and 16 Oct. in Drammen, all won by Christoffersen. I do not know whether the other Drammen game was ever played.
