  MissScarlett: Most sources give the player as <M Frentz>. Whence Robert?
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <<R.> Frentz> according to the Paris 1933 crosstable: http://www.rogerpaige.webspace.virg...

  MissScarlett: I suspect 'most' sources are channeling Skinner & Verhoeven. They have a tournament cross-table for Paris 1933, with <M Frentz>, citing <La Strategie>. <M> probably stands for <Monsieur>.

  zanzibar: <MissS> + others ...

but, but, ...

I have a contemporaneous source listing all the other players with prenom initials - suggesting his prenom starts with M.

See this game:

[Round "?"]
[White "Jung, L."]
[Black "Frentz, M. "]
[Result "1-0"]

[EventDate "1933.09.10"]
[Source "Comoedia (Paris) 1933-09-24 p4"]
[Notes "Frentz, M. (M is indeed prenom) is given as Fance in source, but see prev week column"]

1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.c4 e6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e3 c6 6.Bd3 Nbd7 7.O-O O-O 8. Nbd2 h6 9.Bh4 Re8 10.Rc1 Qc7 11.e4 dxe4 12.Nxe4 Nxe4 13.Bxe4 Bxh4 14. Nxh4 Nf6 15.Bb1 b6 16.d5 Rd8 17.Re1 exd5 18.cxd5 Rxd5 19.Qxd5 g5 20. Qxc6 1-0


E.g. source uses M. L. Jung...

Now I know <stonehenge>'s cites an authoritative site, but given my contemporaneous source I need another to break the deadlock.

Whence, indeed.

  zanzibar: OK, the lesson is jamais trust la lettre M en franšais.

<R. Frentz> and <M.(!) Jung> --

<R. Frentz> et sans Jung! --

<Frentz>, <R. Frentz> and <L. Jung> --

Oo la la.

Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: OK, my bad - Fance is from France, (Maxime Fance), L. Jung is Lucien, and the game I cited from a tournoi subsidiaire, and not the principle Championnat.

Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: Let's note the correct name this time round...

May-19-18  Retireborn: <z> That Tarta game was played in round 8, if my Big 2002 database is to be trusted. They have 32 games from the tournament.

They also use M.Frentz, but more shockingly they replace Cukierman with Bernard Zuckerman (b.1943!)
