Event table notes

Event data
Name: 10th British Chess Federation Tournament - Major Open
Place: Cheltenham
Start date: 11 Aug. 1913
End date: 23 Aug. 1913
 
Notes:
Gaige and Di Felice both have Abraham Speijer playing in this tournament but defaulting all his games, so I do not include him here for rating purposes. Di Felice has 'Schelfhout, Willem Andreas Theodorus' at this event; Gaige just has 'Schelfhout'. The clipping (from the British Chess Magazine?) on Saunders' website has 'T.E. Schelfhout'. I am guessing that Di Felice is correct. I am also assuming that the 'T. Taylor' at this event was Thomas Taylor, who participated in local events in the south of England from 1901 to 1904.
