|Jul-05-05|| ||Knight13: Jules Arnous de Rivière (1830 - 1905) was a French chess player. He was a regular adversary of Paul Morphy.|
|Jul-19-05|| ||Knight13: COOL! Now Chessgames.com has put up a biography for this player.|
|Oct-07-05|| ||AlexanderMorphy: Anyone who could beat Paul Morphy should be regarded as a great player!|
|May-04-08|| ||brankat: According to the Bio, J.A.de Riviere died in 1905, but, miraculously, his chess career continued until 1928!|
On a serious note, de Riviere defeated Morphy 3 times in the so-called "off-hand" games (according to this database). Also he had wins against A.Anderssen, Chigorin and de Vere. A strong player indeed.
|May-04-10|| ||mike1: wikepedia does have some more info.
|May-04-10|| ||BIDMONFA: Jules Arnous De Riviere|
DE RIVIERE, Jules Arnous
|May-04-13|| ||brankat: R.I.P. master De Riviere.|
|May-04-13|| ||Sneaky: <He also invented many games.> That makes him what is called a "ludographer". Much respect. It takes talent to be able to master a game, but a rare kind of talent to invent games.|
|Oct-09-13|| ||Karpova: 2nd French National Tournament (commenced on November 6, 1881) at the Cercle des Echecs - double round robin (12 rounds overall):|
1. Chamier 9.5
2-3. De Rivière 8 wins
2-3. Goudjou 8 wins
4. Clerc 5.0
5. Gifford 4.5
6. Chaserey 3.5
7. De Boiserte 2.5
From page 14 of the January 1882 'British Chess Magazine'
|May-04-15|| ||RookFile: Too bad he didn't make it to play Reshevsky. A bunch of people would have better Morphy numbers if he had.|
|Nov-01-15|| ||Avun Jahei: what games did he invent?|
|Nov-01-15|| ||jnpope: He created a Salta variant called Steeple-chase:
<Echo de Paris, 1902.07.07, p6>
There is a game de Rivière vs Pillsbury played under Steeple-chase rules:
<Echo de Paris, 1903.03.16, p6>
|Nov-02-15|| ||Avun Jahei: there are recorded Salta games played by Pillsbury?|
|Nov-02-15|| ||jnpope: I have not found a Salta game played by Pillsbury just the Steeple-chase game with de Riviere. He did compete in a Salta tournament after Paris 1900 placing 10th on the prize list (Brody and Schlechter tied for 1st-2nd).|
|Dec-02-15|| ||bengalcat47: Very interesting article <jnpope>. Chess and checkers variations are always of great interest to me, in particular Turkish draughts, where all 64 squares can be used and kings move much like rooks. I have a large collection of board games, and also I have links to sites where the board game Pente can be played online.|
|Jun-20-16|| ||mulde: May his name in the databases should be corrected.
Not "de Riviere - NN", it should be changed in "Arnous de Rivière - NN".
Arnous is NOT his forename but it is part of his family name. Have a look here:
By the way, the pictures are great, aren't they?
He seemed to be first who suffered with Black by the line 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e5 Nfd7 6.Bxe7 Qxe7 7.Nb5 which is normally credited now to Alapin but was played first presumely by Chigorin in his match with Arnous de Rivière, Paris 1883, 1-0 (36).
But it was the great Alapin who picked it up and used it in the 5th German Cbess Congress, Frankfurt 1887, against Burn (1-0, 87), and Metger (0-1, 41).
