The Belgian championship for players of the second class, it its best, was a playground for young talent. From this edition, however, no players broke through to the national top. As far as I can tell, Philippart, who won on Sonneborn-Berger, never scored another notable victory. [1] has full results and final standings as well as one game. [2] has another game.

Wanted

  • Most games.
