Event table notes

Event data
Place: Havana (?)
Start date: Sep. 1901
End date: Oct. 1901
Winter mentions 2 informal games played in Sept./Oct. 1901, before their more famous match. Sarah's Chess Journal has an excerpt from Lasker's Chess Magazine of Feb. 1905, which mentions a match of 4 games in which 'no decision was reached', prior to the famous match. Lasker's report is inaccurate in regards to that other match, however, so cannot be relied on in regards to the former.
