Event table notes

Event data
Name: 3rd United States Chess Association Congress
Place: Saint Louis
Start date: 4 Feb. 1890
End date: 12 Feb. 1890
 
Notes:
Di Felice indicates that some of the games were lost by default (1 by Robbins, 1 by Brown, 4 by Uedemann); Davies gives most of the same forfeits, but not the one between Brown and Pollock; Gaige gives the official scores, as if all games had been played. I adopt Di Felice's version. Gaige has 'A.C. Brown' at this event; Di Felice has 'Brown, H.C.'; Davies has sometimes 'A.C. Brown' and sometimes 'H.C. Brown'. Gaige gives ending date Feb. 12 1890; Di Felice and Davies give Feb. 11.
