NB: There seems to have been a double forfeit in the first Le Cygne vs. Antwerp SK match.

The victory for Antwerp SK was rather a hard-fought one as the Ghent team, with Colle and Polish master Tuhan-Baranowski, provided formidable opposition. The two teams from Brussels played no role, especially as CÉ Brussels gave many forfeits. The Liège team, where Soultanbeieff usually played, was absent.

I collected the results from [1] and [2]. Unfortunately, the Belgian newspapers were busy reporting on the great New York tournament and the Belgian championship and I have been unable to find any games.

Here are the round-by-round results. Note that the board order was apparently not fixed, as the Dunkelblums played in both orders. Points obtained by forfeits are not included in the results below. Note also that some of the nationalities may well be wrong.
