Notes:
This was a three-way event between Marco, Schlechter and Zinkl, which took place in the summer of 1894. It appears from the scores that 5 wins were needed to win each pairing. Often recorded as separate matches, with results 5.5-5.5 for Marco-Schlechter, and Schlechter-Zinkl, and 5.5-2.5 for Marco-Zinkl. Gillam, in the Quarterly for Chess History, gives precise dates.
