Event table notes

Event data
Name: Junior Chess Club Tournament
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: 1889
End date: 1889
 
Notes:
Partial results available. Only the total scores are given, wins and losses, for 7 players, but their totals are out of 20, 21 or 22, which suggests that some games were not played. These scores are consistent with a 9 player, triple-round all-play-all, if the 2 unlisted players forfeited many of their games. Thus, each player listed, instead of playing 24 games, would have defaulted either 2, 3 or 4 games against the other 2 players. This interpretation is not certain, but if not correct, the error in rating effect will not be large in any case, so I have adopted it.
