Van Seters was apparently a difficult enemy for O’Kelly. [1] gives the tournament table and quite a few games. [3] is a newspaper clipping send to me by a longstanding correspondent, while [2] also gives a few games. The one that seems to be most well-known is De Wolf-O’Kelly de Galway.

At this point in history, the Belgian chess federation organised a Belgian championship, reserved for Belgian, and a championship of the federation that foreign members (like Van Seters and Soultanbeieff) were allowed to play.

Warning!

I found the games Thibaut-Soultanbeieff, Soultanbeieff-O’Kelly de Galway, Soultanbeieff-Limbos, O’Kelly de Galway-Limbos, Limbos-Thibaut, and Borodin-O’Kelly de Galway in my database, but without sources.

Wanted

  • Most games.
  • Round-by-round results.
