All the information I have I found in De Volksgazet ([1]) from the first half of 1973. In this tournament, a player would get 3 points for a victory, 2 for a draw and 1 for a loss, while a forfeit would mean a 0. Similarly, if a whole team was forfeited, it received 0 points, while a loss would have yielded 1, a drawn match 2 and a victory 3. I had to reconstruct the result from the match CRE Brussels – SK Anderlecht II from the final standings. It seems like the game between Van Dam and Renard was decided as 1-0 – a result which, by the explanation above, should be impossible. Maybe there was some kind of accident? The individual results, as far as I have them, are as below, but keep in mind that these are very much incomplete. The round-by-round results can be found here.

Wanted

  • The detailed results for some matches.
  • Most games.
  • Many first names.
