[1] isn’t very clear on the schedule. The first two rounds were played on Saturday and Sunday October 20th and 21st respectively. I suspect the third and fourth rounds were played on Saturday, October 27th and the final round on October 28th. Keep in mind that this is conjectural, though. [1] also gives final standings and the results from the first two rounds (except for the adjourned game between Vinken and Kirkels). This sufficed for the reconstruction of the crosstable. Vinken, the only player with some international experience, won convincingly.

There were also a couple of quadrangular tournaments, probably held in the weekend of October 27th and 28th. Colemont won the principal one. Other Belgians might have participated in this or lower groups.

Wanted

  • All games.
  • The crosstable for the main quadrangular group.
