The games are widely available; I took them from [2]. According to [3], there were preliminary groups to decide which local players got to participate, but these local heroes were no match for the foreign top players. Colle scored a merciless 9 out of 9 against the Spanish players, reaching 3rd place and winning won 1.200 pesetas.
