Event table notes

Event data
Name: 6th New South Wales Championship
Place: Sydney
Start date: 17 Nov. 1920
End date: 15 Jan. 1921
 
Notes:
This was originally a 15-player single-round all-play-all, but A.E. Nield withdrew after a dispute over his game with S. Crakanthorp, so in the end 14 players completed the tournament and the scores are given out of 13. Di Felice has a partial crosstable, which is not complete enough to use, and total scores for the top 6 players. However, his scores for S. Crakanthorp and Wallace (12.5 and 10, respectively) do not match the results given in contemporary newspapers (12 and 11, respectively), and in fact, his score for Crakanthorp does not match the crosstable itself, which is complete for this player.
