A very convincing victory for O’Kelly – and a big disappointment for Lemaire. The crosstable comes from [1] and is confirmed by final standings from [2]. [2] gives a bunch of games, as well as the final standings in the candidates’ tournament, which were as follows:

Candidates’ tournament: 1. Winants 7/8 2. Gulpenne 6 3. Schumacher 5½ 4. Forgeur 4 5-6. Herrygers & Paepens 3½ 7-8. Blitz & Simon 2½ 9. Van Mol 1½

Thibaut won the brilliancy prize for his game against Van Hoorde. In the candidates’ tournament, Winants won the prize for his victory against Gulpenne.

Wanted

  • Most games.
  • The crosstable for the candidates’ tournament.
