Event table notes

Event data
Name: Hastings International Congress - Master's Tournament
Place: Hastings
Start date: 5 Aug. 1895
End date: 3 Sep. 1895
 
Notes:
Pope's crosstable indicates that Pillsbury's win over von Bardeleben was by default. Neither the crosstables given by Sergeant, Feenstra Kuiper, Gaige, Di Felice, Hannak, Giffen and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi, nor the scores given by Reichhelm and Sarah's Chess Journal indicate any defaulted games. Tim Harding tells me that reports in The Times make it clear that the game was not played, so I take Pope's table to be correct and do not count the default win. Gaige and Giffen give end date 2 Sept. 1895 and Pope gives the date of Pillsbury's last game as 2 Sept. 1895; Feenstra Kuiper, Di Felice and Hannak give the end date as 3 Sept. 1895. Sarah's Chess Journal gives the end date as 4 Sept. 1895. The Morning Post of 4 Sept. 1895 show that the final games were played on 3 Sept. 1895 (information from Tim Harding).
