A rather weak edition of the Belgian championship, without Dunkelblum, Devos, O’Kelly de Galway, Van Schoor etc. The crosstable and some games come from [1]. [2] gives the results for the first five rounds of the candidates’ tournament and the final standings, which allowed me to reconstruct the crosstable.

Warning!

I found quite a few games in my database for which I didn’t note a source.

Wanted

  • Most games, including all from the candidates’ section.
  • First names for Vandamme and Simon.
