According to [1], Colle couldn’t play due to illness. The tournament was directed by Isidore Censer. Barzin played under his usual pseudonym of Varlin. Soultanbeieff, Sapira and Dunkelblum were all immigrants. Dunkelblum certainly had the Polish nationality at this point. Sapira was from Romanian origin, and Soultanbeieff was Russian.

[2] gives most of the games I have but in the wrong order. ChessBase gives the rounds in the normal order  where number 1 plays against number 12 and so on, but, for some reason, they were played in a different order. I have given them in the chronological order.

A couple of additional games come from [3]-[6].

Wanted:

  • Quite a few games.
