Event data
Place: Saint Louis
Start date: 12 Jan. 1889
End date: Jan. 1889
Part of a match in which Hodges played even and gave Pawn and Move odds to Haller in alternate games. Hilbert and Lahde give only the total for the match before it was abaindoned (4-2 for Haller), and note that Haller won the first 2 games (one even and one at odds). I am guessing that Hodges won two of the even games, and lost all the odds games (though this breakdown makes no difference for rating purposes).
