Event table notes

Event data
Name: 1st Western Chess Association Tournament (1st USA Open)
Place: Excelsior
Start date: 3 Sep. 1900
End date: Sep. 1900
 
Notes:
Tunstall, Stevens, Nelson and Hart withdrew after playing only 3 games each. This was run on a 'Pyramid system' (somewhat like a Swiss tournament), each player (except the 4 early withdrawals) playing 5 games, except that some players played the same opponent 2 or even 3 times. Di Felice has 'Thompson, Guy W.', 'Clark, James W.' and 'Tunstall, M.' here; chessgames.com has 'Guy M Thompson', 'John W Clark' and 'John Tunstall'.
