Event data

Start date: 10 May 1882
End date: 24 June 1882
 
Notes:
Feenstra Kuiper, Gaige, Di Felice, and Harding (in Steinitz in London) agree on which games were defaulted by Noa and Fleissig, but Feenstra Kuiper, Di Felice, and Harding indicate that Schwarz and Bird defaulted some of their games as well, while Gaige does not. Harding also indicates a forfeit by Wittek against Chigorin, not indicated by Feenstra Kuiper, Gaige, or Di Felice. Harding tells me (personal communication) that this came from a misreading of comments by Bijl in his tournament book. Harding has now communcated with Bijl who clarified and pointed to an explanation in Österreichische Lesehalle (Jan. 1886, p.19), which said that Chigorin didn't show up for his game against Wittek because of a change of the timing of rounds, and Chigorin thought he had a bye that day. However, according to the Weiner Allgemeine Zeitung (21 Jun. 1882, evening edition, p.3), cited by Bijl, they played a supplementary game (Nachtrags-Partie) on 21 June (near the end of the tournament), which Chigorin won. Thus, this game should be counted as part of the tournament. La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives only official results, not indicating any defaulted games. Gaige and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi also omit the play-off between Steinitz and Winawer, given by Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice. Gaige, Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice give the starting date as 10 May 1882; Sergeant gives the starting date as 5 May 1882. Gaige gives the ending date 18 June 1882; Sergeant gives the ending date as 25 June 1882; Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice give the ending date 26 June 1882; the Chess Player's Chronicle gives 24 June as the day of the last play-off game. According to the British Chess Magazine, 26 June was the day the prizes were distributed.
