[1] gives the crosstable and the dates – but are those correct? August 10-14 seems very short for a 9-round tournament. [3] gives a bunch of games and [4] gives one more. According to [2], there was a play-off match over two games, both of which were drawn. Willaert was pronounced champion because of a better SB-score. This tournament was organised by the Gobert-club under direction of Hubert Thys.

Wanted

  • Almost all games.
  • Are the dates correct?
