[1] gives final standings and almost all results; enough to reconstruct the crosstable. The few games I have come from [1]-[4].

This was the third and, as far as I’m aware, last edition of this tournament sponsored by the journal La Nation Belge. With many strong players — Colle, Sapira, Duchamp, etc. — absent, Koltanowski scored a very convincing victory. Still, the biggest gap in the standings comes after Tackels. There was no minor tournament this time.

Wanted

  • Almost all games.
  • First names for Finn, Van Beneden, Neirynckx, Sury, Cockinos, Duchaine, and Jonet.
