Event table notes

Event data
Name: 6th Counties Chess Association Meeting - Class III
Place: Glasgow
Start date: 2 Aug. 1875
End date: 7 Aug. 1875
 
Notes:
Crum's score is not listed, but he is placed between Gilchrist with 3 points and Brash with 4. In the Class II event, players with the same score were bracketted together, which is not the case for Crum here, so I will guess that he scored 3.5 (if 3, he should be bracketted with Gilchrist, and if 4, with Brash). This is also plausible because the number of half points in the scores of players must be even. This still gives scores that total only 19, not 21 as they should for a 7-player single-round all-play-all tournament, so I have guessed that Steigman's games against Kennedy and Bash were not played and thus not scored. There is no evidence for this as opposed to any other games that might have been unplayed, but it was more usual for such unplayed games to occur at the bottom of the crosstable.
