Event table notes

Event data
Name: Kaiser Jubiläumsturnier
Place: Vienna
Start date: 1 June 1898
End date: 30 July 1898
 
Notes:
Di Felice and Forster give results of the 8 rounds played by A. Schwarz before he withdrew. The results of his games were not counted in the official scores, but I include them here. Reichhelm gives totals with 1 extra point for all players, presumably because Schwarz withdrew part way through the first round after losing to some of the players; however, Schwarz drew against Blackburne, yet Blackburne gets the full extra point in Reichhelm's list, and Showalter is given 2 extra points in Reichhelm's list. Forster also indicates that Blackburne got the full point in the official score. Forster's and Pope's crosstables indicates that Janowsky's and Alapin's wins against Walbrodt were by default. Neither the crosstables given by Feenstra Kuiper, Gaige and Di Felice, nor the scores given by Reichhelm indicate any defaulted games. I take Forster's and Pope's tables to be correct in this regard, and do not count the defaulted wins. The fact that Walbrodt lost 2 games by default is confirmed by the report in the British Chess Magazine reproduced at ChessCafé. Feenstra Kuiper, Gaige and Di Felice all give 31 May 1898 as the starting date, but play actually began on 1 June 1898.
