A surprising victory for Van Seters, who defeated O’Kelly to take first spot. Besides Besser, Riddel and Eisenstein there were Van Seters and Soultanbeieff as technically non-Belgian players. [1] gives Besser as a German player, while [3] claims he is from Luxemburg. [1] gives the crosstable, [2] gives a few games; [3] gives quite a few more.

Wanted

  • Almost all games.
  • Besser’s first name and nationality.
