Event table notes

Event data
Name: 4th Counties Chess Association Meeting - Class II
Place: Bristol
Start date: 4 Aug. 1873
End date: 9 Aug. 1873
 
Notes:
This was a 13-player single-round all-play-all tournament, but the report in the Chess Player's Chronicle says that the 13th player, T. May, 'lost his games by default'. But he has shown with a score of +1-11 and it is not stated against whom he scored a win. Thus, I cannot include his score, and I have subtracted 1 point from all the other scores in the report so as not to include their wins by default against May. One player, whoever lost to May, should not have 1 point subtracted, but I don't know who this is and so to use this tournament result at all, I have to let this error remain unless further information arises. Actually, the sum of scores is two points short of what it should be for a full crosstable with 12 players, so one other point is missing somewhere, too. I am not sure whether it was H.M. Isaacs of Bristol or Lister Isaac of Worcester at this event.
