|Jul-05-06|| ||Whitehat1963: I wonder if Mayet ever played Eichborn, another of Anderssen's frequent opponents.|
|Aug-11-08|| ||Eastfrisian: He died in Stettin, now Szczecin.|

(Wiki asked if I've meant K Mayer) :D
|Aug-11-09|| ||Phony Benoni: Just out of curiosity (since I hardly expect to use it in conversation), how is his last name pronounced? It looks more French than German.|
|Aug-11-09|| ||whiteshark: <PB> It looks French and I you spell it French.

Historically he could be a descendant of
- fled French huguenots or
- French soldier who served during the Napoleonic occcupation
- other migration

|Aug-11-09|| ||returnoftheking: what should they say..

|Aug-11-09|| ||WhiteRook48: he keeps losing matches|

Good point, especially if they end it by saying that "had a distinguished career in chess".
|Nov-12-14|| ||Karpova: The bio looks fine and mostly needs only minor modifications like proper sourcing. I can't agree with the criticism voiced here, since it misses the point. The bio tries to give an overview over Mayet's complete chess career. SeeRod Edwards' page on Mayet: http://www.edochess.ca/players/p55..... For sure, Mayet lost most of those matches, but Anderssen and also Neumann for example belonged to the strongest players in the world back then. It is comparable to playing a match against a top ten player today - an honour in itself already. Despite the strong opposition, Mayet still did score some points.|
