The traditional match between Rotterdam and Antwerp ended in a victory for the Dutch home team, but the visitors won the exchange trophy since only the first ten boards counted towards that. I know little more than the results quoted above, that come from [1]. I do wonder why Dunkelblum played on such a low board. Was he maybe a last minute replacement for someone else?
