[1] gives all the individual results and team scores. Together with the information from [2] that the SB scores were used as tie-breakers, this allowed the reconstruction of the above crosstable. Tournaments of this type were relatively popular at this time. Every team delegated seven players, each of whom played one game, the pairings being done in such a way that every team met exactly once. The individual scores per team were as follows, but I do not know who played against whom:
