The tables are taken from [4]. [1] gives a different final standing for the main tournament, where George has 4 and Malpas 1½ point.

The nationalities are for the most part a guessing game – especially in the minor tournament, where almost all players are unknown to me.  The Peeters playing in the minor tournament might be Francis Peeters, but that’s pure conjecture.

[2] and [3] give some more details: playing hours were 14-18, 21-24 and if necessary 10-12 the next day. Players had to complete 30 moves in 2 hours and then 15 moves per hour. The prizes were as follows:  300 Fr. and an art object; 300 Fr., 200 Fr. and 100 Fr.

Wanted:

  • Most games – including all from the minor sections.
  • The first names of Pannekoek, George, De St. Moulin & Manford.
  • I am not sure about the nationalities of a number of players.
