Event table notes

Event data
Name: South Africa Championship
Place: Cape Town
Start date: 17 Apr. 1897
End date: 23 Apr. 1897
 
Notes:
According to Reitstein (p.25), Hodges only completed 5 games, so his other 7 were forfeited. There is no indication of which opponents he forfeited to. This will cause some error in his rating, but he scored 0 in any case. The error in the rating of the opponents to whom he forfeited will be slight.
