[1] gives the crosstable, [2] the games, and [3] the dates. [3] announces that Koltanowski would play in the premier reserves and gives Reynolds as participant in the main section so, like the previous year, Koltanowski was probably a last-minute replacement for the main section. He didn’t score as well as then, but managed to draw against Alekhine. The crosstables from the Premier Reserves come from [5]. I have one game from Premier reserves B: Van Seters-Devos, which I took from [4]. Note that Van Seters had the Dutch nationality, but lived in Brussels pretty much all his life. Finally, one game from Premier Reserves A comes from [6]. The names I and II respectively A and B seems to have been used interchangeably for the two Premier Reserves sections.

Wanted

  • All but two of the Premier Reserves games.
