Chess Review's crosstable: https://www.redhotpawn.com/imgu/blo...

We are missing a <lot> of games. Green developed an eye problem that required medical attention and he formally withdrew after Round 12, but he had at least five unplayed games and probably never finished his adjourned game with Horowitz from Round 6. The crosstable from <Chess Review> says he forfeited seven games. Seidman forfeited an unplayed game to Steiner in Round 12. That leaves approximately 112 played games.

This was the tournament of the infamous "clock forfeit" incident where director L. Walter Stephens blew the call and refused to reverse his decision (see some of the kibitzing for Reshevsky vs Denker, 1942). Kashdan's report in Chess Review read <"Round 6: Here is the first big break of the tournament. Reshevsky beats Denker in a drawn position when Denker oversteps the time limit. This causes commotion and a near-riot. The spectators and officials all get a look at the clock, which is carried about and handled by all and sundry. There is a wide divergence of opinion, but the referee has ruled and is later upheld by the tournament committee. I beat Altman and leave early, only learning of the excitement the next day."> This more or less cost Kashdan a clear first, and so he was co-champion with Reshevsky until he lost the playoff match some six months later (Game Collection: 1942 US championship playoff match).
