This tournament united the four founding clubs of the Belgian chess federation. I took all the games I have from [1]. [2] gives final standings and some of the match results, allowing for the reconstruction of the crosstable. Notice that my source sometimes call this the “big cities” tournament, but that seems a bit of a misnomer as Charleroi is missing.

Wanted

  • Almost all the games.
  • The individual results.
