With 1860 participants, this was probably the largest correspondence tournament ever at this point in time. O’Kelly ended two points behind the winner, but still scored very well. He also won both the 1st (for his game against Barda) and 3rd (for his games against Nielsen) beauty prices. Rompteau won the 4th price for short games, for his game against Becker.

Warning!

I found some (fragments of) games in my database, but forgot to note the source.

Wanted

  • The exact dates.
  • O’Kelly’s game against Napolitano.
  • Completions of the stubs I have. (Or were they lost on time?)
  • Results and games for the lower series.
