Event table notes

Event data
Name: 1st British Chess Federation Championship - Play-off
Place: Hastings
Start date: Jan. 1905
End date: Jan. 1905
 
Notes:
Although Hilbert says the tie-break match between Napier and Atkins began in Dec. 1904, according to Forster, it was played early in 1905, and according to Sergeant, it was played in Jan. 1905, so it is listed as a separate event here. Hilbert (p.255) and Sergeant (p.244) confirm that these tie-break games were played in Hastings. The main tournament crosstable appears under the year 1904.
