After some participants of the 1931 olimpiad in Prague were returning home, the local chess club Schaakstudiekring took the opportunity to organise a small international tournament. The tournament took place in Boulaer Park Hotel. On weekdays, games were played from 19:30 until 23:30, in the weekend from 16:00 until 20:00. Laforce was arbiter. The tournament hall was open to everyone. Denhaene, who was president of the Schaakstudiekring, welcomed the masters on Wednesday July 29th. A good showing by Sapira and by Baert, who was still a student at this point.
