Notes:
This was a knockout tournament in which pairings were randomly chosen for each round, and a player was knocked out after 4 losses (including half losses for draws). There were 13 players. Spencer's first round game against Clarke was unfinished after the first day's play, but was eventually counted as a loss for Spencer. It is not clear whether it was finished, and Spencer forfeited his next 3 games. I will count this first round game as played. There were 6 games in the first round (McElliott had a bye). Only 5 games were played in the second round, since Spencer forfeited to Field, and Robinson had a bye. It seems that only 4 games were played in the third round, since Mosely had a bye, Spencer forfeited to Ansaldo, and Manson probably forfeited to Koshnitzky. This last game was stated to be lost by forfeit in the 11 Sep. 1926 issue of the Telegraph (Brisbane), but the 25 Sep. 1926 issue says that Koshnitsky beat Manson. This may have been an error, or meant as a win by forfeit, since the 16 Oct. 1926 issue counts the scores to the end of the ninth round, giving Koshnitsky 1 bye, which he did not have at that point unless we interpret this to mean that he did not play Manson in the third round. I will assume that it was never played. In the fourth round, 5 games were played, since Spencer forfeited to Manson and Bennett had a bye. In the fifth round, 4 games were played, since Spencer and Kreigher were out, Robinson forfeited to Field, and Manson had a bye. In the sixth round it seems only 3 games were played, since Robinson had withdrawn, Clarke and Poole were both out, leaving 8 players still active, and the Manson-Thomson game was never played. Manson then withdrew from the tournament. Three games were played in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth rounds, with 7 active players, and Field, Thomson and Ansaldo, respectively, getting a bye. After the ninth round, Bennett, Mosely, and Thomson were all knocked out, so two games were played in the tenth round, after which Field was knocked out. That left 3 players, and only 1 game was played per round from then on. In the eleventh round Koshnitsky got a bye, and in the twelfth round McElliott got a bye, and Ansaldo was knocked out. The thirteenth and fourteenth rounds were between Koshnitsky and McElliott, the former finally knocking the latter out. Note that the Ozbase file for this event (which also includes a minor tournament) omits the game Field-Thomson in the ninth round. The results given by Di Felice differ from mine in three places: He records Field's win over Robinson in the fifth round as played, whereas I have it as a forfeit; he records the win by Thomson over Manson in the sixth round as played, whereas it seems it was not played, though my sources give slightly contradictory indications; and he omits the ninth round win by Field over Thomson.
