Notes:
This was a 9-player double round all-play-all (although a 10th player, Riccardo-Rocamora, had withdrawn early and had his game scores cancelled - he seems to have had a score of +4-0=1 when he withdrew). A.K. Ettlinger played 10 out of his 16 games scoring 0/10 and then forfeited the rest, but I do not know who his forfeited games were against and who he actually played, so I am not including his score here. In principle, the 6 players who received points without playing him should not have this point counted here, but as I don't know who they were I have left these scores intact - a slight inaccuracy. On the other hand, the result of the final game between Koehler and Schmidt is not recorded. It must have been a win or draw for Schmidt, otherwise Koehler would have tied Hodges for 1st place. But since I don't know, I do not include the result of that game here.
