Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-17  Cibator: There was a French player called Maklès in the mid-60s, who became well known in the UK after a good performance in the Glorney Cup (an international teams contest for juniors). I can't seem to turn up any further information about him, not even a first name or initial.

Is this the same man with a slightly different spelling? His birth date as given here looks about right.

  Tabanus: <Cibator> has this comment on a group photo (translated to English): <his neighbor (73) is Jacques Maklès with a "k". It is also under this spelling that he was brilliantly champion of France in 1970. The transformation from "k" to "c" dates from much later (1976?)>

  Gejewe: Jacques Maclès did other tricks with his name than changing a "k" to a "c". In the Noteboom weekend Swiss in Leiden, back in 1979 (when my memory serves well) he played under the name of "Limonest" which created quite a stir among the topplayers. It was the Belgian master Bernard de Bruijcker who recognised him, and blew the whistle. I do not think it had any repercussions. But he won he tournament ahead of strong players such as John van der Wiel. I have played in the Dinard open in 1986 myself, where Maclès was competing. A strong player.
