On their way to the unofficial Olympiad in Munich, the Latvian team passed by Antwerp, and the local chess team took the opportunity to organise a match. In the Belgian newspapers, this match is usually called Antwerp vs. Riga, but the whole Latvian team appeared, so Antwerp vs. Latvia seems more appropriate. The Antwerp side saw a convincing but not dishonourable defeat.

The complete results are given in [1], the few games I have I took from [1] and [2]. Probably, a lot more can be found in Latvian periodicals. Sapira’s victory is relatively famous.

Wanted
