Event table notes

Event data
Name: 6th Counties Chess Association Meeting - Provincial Champion's Cup
Place: Glasgow
Start date: 2 Aug. 1875
End date: 7 Aug. 1875
 
Notes:
La Grande Storia degli Scacchi has 'William Hunter' where Di Felice has 'Henry John Clinton Andrews' and Gaige has 'Andrews'. Forster has 'Hunter, Andrew' and indicates that he played under the pseudonym 'Andrews'. Gaige and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi have 'Jenkins' where Forster and Di Felice has 'Jenkin, John'. Di Felice gives start date Aug. 3, 1875; Forster gives Aug. 2, 1875. Forster notes that the games Hunter-Spens, Jenkin-Spens and Hunter-Jenkin were unfinished during the congress and were played out some weeks later, so the results for the first 2 of these pairings differ from the report in the Chess Player's Chronicle, which is the version given by Gaige and Di Felice. Thus, Gaige and Di Felice give Spens-Jenkin as a loss for Spens; Forster gives it as a win for Spens. Gaige and Di Felice indicate that Hunter-Spens was unfinished; Forster gives it as a win for Hunter.
