Event table notes

Event data
Name: New York State Challenge Cup
Place: New York
Start date: 7 Aug. 1893
End date: 10 Aug. 1893
 
Notes:
Hilbert, in his ChessCafe article, says that Olly came second to Hodges in the NYSCA championship in 1893, losing the title only after a play-off. Perhaps this refers to a different event, as Olly here came equal second with Hanham, but a full 3.5 points behind the winner, Hodges. The table of results in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle is completely inconsistent and incomprehensible. The Brooklyn Daily Standard Union of 12 Aug. 1893 gives totals. Gaige and Di Felice give dates 7-10 Aug. 1893; Hilbert and Lahde give dates 7-12 Aug. 1893 for the whole event, but perhaps this included the handicap tournament.
