Event table notes

Event data
Name: 14th New York State Championship
Place: New York
Start date: 22 Feb. 1892
End date: 27 Feb. 1892
 
Notes:
There were 32 competitors and 5 rounds, with players being knocked out after 2 losses, so each player played no more than 5 games. There are discrepancies in the results reported by different sources, but a complete score can at least tentatively be compiled. The New York Sun of 23 Feb. 1892 has the most detailed report, including the results of all the first through fourth round games, though in some cases scores are reported here as 1-0 when in fact they were drawn, but presumably one player was somehow chosen to continue as if they had won (in the case of Morgan-Mayerhofer in the first round, Mayerhofer forfeited, so it is not included here for rating purposes). The result of the game Morgan-Ferris in round 2 is given as a win for Ferris in both the New York Sun and the Brooklyn Daily Eagle of 23 Feb. 1892, but this must be an error, since the later rounds make no sense unless Morgan won, so I am assuming this. In round 4, we know that Olly played Delmar and went through to the final. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle says that Olly beat Delmar, but the Brooklyn Daily Standard Union says that they drew. Hilbert gives the draw as reported in the latter newspaper. The New York Sun also reports it as a win for Olly, but that newspaper recorded drawn games as 1-0 for the player who went through to the next round as if they had won, so it is not conclusive. However, since Olly went through to play the final against Hodges, and since the Brooklyn Daily Standard Union also claims that Eccles beat Delmar in round 5, where all other sources say it was a draw, it would seem that the Brooklyn Daily Standard Union mistakenly confused the opponent against whom Delmar drew (thinking it was Olly instead of Eccles), so I take Olly-Delmar as 1-0. The reports of the final round are very confused. Hodges and Olly were the only two players with 4/4 after 4 rounds, and Hodges beat Olly (after an adjournment until 27 Feb. 1892) to win the event, Olly therefore coming second. There were 8 players who had 3/4 after 4 rounds, and not all of those could receive prizes. Eccles and Delmar drew and shared 3rd and 4th prizes (they had been the other two players with 3/3 after 3 rounds, though Delmar had actually drawn Lipschütz in round 1 but continued as if he had won). The New York Sun then says only that 'Stubbs, Morgan, Simonson, Hanham, Rogers and Voigt tried conclusions for the remaining prizes'. Rogers drew Voigt, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and the International Chess Magazine, and, according to the Brooklyn Daily Standard Union, Simonson beat Hanham at some point, and this could only have happened in round 5, since the first two rounds are accounted for and Hanham and Simonson were both winners in rounds 3 and 4. This leaves Morgan and Stubbs as the other two players who had 3/4 after 4 rounds and thus should have competed for the prizes. The Brooklyn Daily Standard Union, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the American Chess Monthly and the International Chess Magazine all mention Morgan as a prize winner and none mention Stubbs, so it seems likely that Morgan beat Stubbs in round 5 (unless Stubbs defaulted), and I assume this. It is not clear how those players who won 4/5 or 3.5/5 were ordered to receive prizes. The actual prize list varies between sources. All agree on Hodges 1st, Olly 2nd, Eccles and Delmar sharing 3rd and 4th (except that the New York Daily Tribune says that Hodges and Olly tied for 1st and 2nd). The Brooklyn Daily Standard Union and the New York Daily Tribune then have Simonson 5th, Morgan 6th, Voigt 7th; the Brooklyn Daily Eagle has Morgan 5th, followed by Rogers and Voigt; the American Chess Monthly and the International Chess Magazine have Simonson 5th, Rogers and Voigt 6th, Morgan 7th. Incidentally, Hilbert mistakenly says that the 'Broughton' in this event was Charles Broughton. All contemporary sources are clear that it was L.D. Broughton.
