This tournament was called ‘majeur international’ in the Belgian press, which seems like a rather pretentious title for what was, after all, rather a minor tournament. The international aspect mainly came from some foreigners residing around Liège and two Dutch players from just over the border.

Soultanbeieff won very easily with a round and a point to spare. Barzin, who would go on to win the Belgian championship later that year, finished on a good second place. The other participants played no significant role.

The tournament was played on seven successive Sundays, although some games were played earlier or perhaps later. The results and the very few games I have come from [1].
