Event table notes

Event data
Name: Manhattan Club Full-haired - Bald-headed Match
Place: New York
Start date: 26 Sep. 1891
End date: 26 Sep. 1891
Only partial results available. A team match with 19 players on each side but with final score 14-11 for the bald-headed players. Lipschutz seems to have played (at least) three games, one against an unnamed player, which he lost intentionally (the winner had promised a basket of champagne if he won), and the two recorded here. The bald-headed team claimed the game Lipschutz-Dahl as a win for Dahl since Lipschutz had neglected to record the moves, but here for rating purposes, we of course record it as a win for Lipschutz. The International Chess Magazine of Aug. 1891 (apparently published after 26 Sep. 1891) says the the game Lipschutz-Mintz was a rapid-transit game. It is not clear whether all games were played at rapid time controls, or whether this game was just played particularly quickly. I generally don't include rapid-transit events, but will include this for now.
