Event table notes

Event data
Name: 41st City of London Club Championship - Play-off
Place: London, England
Start date: 1931
End date: 1931
 
Notes:
Gaige cites the British Chess Magazine giving 3.5 for Saunders, 1.5 for Buerger, and 0.5 for Newman (and Di Felice gives the same scores), but this is impossible. Clearly, they played 2 games against each other and the total of their three scores must be 6. I am guessing that Buerger got 2, not 1.5.
