Hoogovenstoernooi – The Entire History: 1938-1999 (Preliminary!)

This blog is really a scratch pad, although I do try to be as careful as I possibly can.

But this is even more tentative than the usual – it’s essentially my raw notes to the one page history of the Hoogovens (Blast Furnace) Tournament. Basically, I’m asking for help in spotting any mistakes. But it should be close to being correct, and does allow a quick scan of the entire history – showing the changes in format, winners and runner ups at a glance.
