Jan-06-11  markbstephenson: evidently white has a perpetual check, so why was this game not a draw? Did Judd lose on time?

  Tabanus: This game was probably drawn. The crosstable in "The Brooklyn Daily Eagle", Sept. 7, 1876 has 1 1/2 to 1/2 for Judd vs Davidson.

Sorry, 1/2 for Judd and 1 1/2 for Davidson.

  Tabanus: The Evening Post (New York), August 19, 1876:

<In the Centennial chess tournament at Philadelphia yesterday Barbour and Mason played the first game, which was a draw. Davidson and Judd followed in a fine game of three hours, which was won by Davidson. <A second game between these two players was a draw, after a hard contest.>>

Jun-29-15  poorthylacine: In the tournament book too, edited by "Olms", the game is given as draw; the question for me would just be to know why the Chessbase is giving 0-1.
