Sultan Khan started with 6/6 but then succumbed, allowing Tartakower to score a nice victory. This was the strongest tournament in Belgium since the big Ostend tournaments at the beginning of the century. According to his book Le maître de l’attaque, Soultanbeieff worked before noon and played his games with a considerable time handicap because of it. I took the games from [2], but they are widely available. The crosstable can be extracted from this; the result is consistent with [1].
