Event table notes

Event data
Name: Wiener Schachgesellschaft Turnier
Place: Vienna
Start date: 15 Nov. 1870
End date: 15 Mar. 1871
 
Notes:
Only partial results available. This was reported to be a 36-player double-round all-play-all tournament, but the reported scores of the top 18 are out of 68, which suggests 35 players (so 2 games against 34 opponents makes 68 games). The report in the Neue Berliner Schachzeitung says that 11 of the 36 players withdrew before the end, forfeiting the rest of their games, and only 25 actually finished. Who forfeited against whom is not reported, so there will be some inaccuracy here in counting as played some games that were not, but the official scores should give a fairly accurate idea of the performance of the players.
