Don't pull a Caparros. Specificity is our friend.

  MissScarlett: A source for the game score, not the result.
Jul-19-18  WorstPlayerEver: <MissScarlett>

The simul was held after the Capa-Euwe match 1931.

Here's the info:

A very good chess site btw. I assume <Stonehenge> is correct this time. With the exception of 1 game. The article speaks of 86%, though. 31 games. Capa's score had probably been higher, if the games did not have to stop at 1:00.

  Stonehenge: I found it in De Telegraaf August 3, 1931.

Jul-19-18  WorstPlayerEver: PS the expectations of the Dutch players were high. But they were wrong. 'Premier League players beheaded' and 'Cuban Mass Murderer' were the Dutch headlines in the newspapers.
Jul-19-18  WorstPlayerEver: <Stonehenge> is right. Oudzuylen is wrong (bummer). Another confirmation:

Leidsche Courant gives exactly the same info +24=3-3

Btw the simul was sponsored by the Telegraaf. A rather prestigious event in those days. Little doubt they got it wrong.
