  Calli: Renaud won the first French National Championship in 1923. Alekhine, an onlooker at the tournament, came over and joked to his friend, "And now, Georges, there is only one more thing for you to do: that is, learn how to play!"
Sep-03-05  SBC: <Calli>

Then we can safely assume that game 8, J Liew vs G Renaud, 1986 and game 9, F Asman vs G Renaud, 1986 is a different G. Renaud?

  Calli: Oui, différent Renauds.

It gets hard to tell the players sans un programme approprié.

  Calli: The later G.Renaud's first name is unknown. He played for tiny Seychelles in the '86 Olympics, lost 12 games (1-1-12) and was never heard from again. The games are of such poor quality that I, for one, would not miss them if they were deleted. Of course deleting a game also played by Asman would bring roarin protest from most CG kibitzers. ;=o

I can only imagine!

  whiteshark: I thought the same yesterday :D
Feb-20-11  David2009: Georges Renaud co-authored 'L'art de faire mat' (The Art of Checkmate) with Victor Kahn. This is the book that names many of the classic mates (Anastasia mate, Arabian mate, epaulette mate, Legal mate, Boden mate, Morphy mate...) etc. I got it when I was fifteen and it absolutely transformed my understanding of chess. I would put it with 'Modern chess strategy' by Edward Lasker as the two all-time 'best buys' for beginners. 'Chess fundamentals' by Jose Raul Capablanca completes my personal best-buy triology, but this book is more not really suited to beginners. Capablanca leaves a lot of material as exercises for the reader and there is not the space for the answers.
Jan-21-16  zanzibar: Well, he does resemble <Sam Jaffe> a little.

(Jaffe, btw, was utterly fantastic in Asphalt Jungle (1950), one of the best movies ever).

Oh, and remember kiddies:

Jan-21-16  zanzibar: Here's an extensive bio on him (en francais):

(Well, more extensive than what <CG> has.)

Jan-22-16  zanzibar: Another excellent site (fr again), with great photos (including Renaud + Alekhine), and even a 1923 game with Bertrand:

<Here is an excerpt from a letter to Erwin Voellmy, editor of the "Swiss Review of Chess", after his victory.

<"You probably read in the newspapers that I came out winner of the championship of France. I did not expect this success and I had, in part, to the victory I achieved in my first game against L. Bertrand, the champion Lyon. But this victory is your work. I carefully read your -Vom Rochadeangriff- (the attack on castling) and I was particularly struck by your demonstration of conditions of possibility of the sacrifice of crazy h7. I even published (quote the reference of course) an article about it. Now here is my part against Bertrand played on July 12, 1923. "><<>>>

Renaud scored an upset, since Muffang was favored to win the championship.

I'll try to get the <Renaud--Bertran (1923)> game, it is rather nice.

Sep-28-19  spingo: "...Berthelot, nephew of Charlemagne,
called him to play at chess. So long they played on a golden board with ivory chessmen that at the last debate arose between them, and Berthelot
called Renaud a foul name, and smote him on the visage so that his blood fell to the ground.

When Renaud saw himself thus outraged he was
right wroth and took the chessboard and smote
Berthelot on his head so hard that he fell down dead to the ground before him. Then went a cry
through the hall of the palace that Renaud had
slain Berthelot, and when the King heard it he
cried :

'Barons, keep guard that Renaud does not
escape, for if I can catch him he shall surely die, since he has slain my nephew.'

So the knights ran on him, but his kinsmen
defended him nobly, and there was a great fray that RENAUD that day in the palace of Paris, and Maugis made there much slaughter."
