The above crosstable was pieced together from the final standings as given in [1] and partial results given in [2]. Unfortunately, this did not suffice to reconstruct the crosstable of the candidates’ tournament. The few games I have come from [1]. [2] announces Mollekens only two days before the start of the tournament, but he was replaced by Buysschaert. I do not know what caused this change. After his victories in Brussels, Teplice-Šanov and twice Hilversum this was already the fifth tournament victory for O’Kelly, and that’s not counting two matches, one against Lemaire and one against Rose.

Wanted

  • Most games from the championship and all games from the candidates’ section.
