According to [1], this tournament was organised right after the 2nd S.W.I.F.T. tournament, although Winants and Meulders were replaced by Hübner – who had recovered by then from the illness which forced him to withdraw from that tournament – and Sosonko. It is not clear to me how official this was as a world championship. [2] has a bunch of games, but they don’t correspond very well to the crosstable; I’d like some confirmation for either the games or the crosstable.
