Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manhattan Café Tournament
Place: New York
Start date: 9 Dec. 1893
End date: 23 Dec. 1893
 
Notes:
Pope's crosstable indicates that Showalter's and Delmar's wins over Ettlinger were by default. Neither the crosstables given by the British Chess Magazine, Gaige, Di Felice and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi, nor the scores given by Feenstra Kuiper and Reichhelm indicate any defaulted games. Urcan (p.74) confirms that Ettlinger had a cold and forfeited these two games, so I do not count them here. Reichhelm has date 1894; Feenstra Kuiper and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi have 1893; The British Chess Magazine, Gaige, Di Felice, Pope and Urcan give exact dates 9-23 Dec. 1893.
