In 1845 he played matches against Wilhelm Hanstein, winning (+3, =2, -1), Karl Mayet, drawing (+3, =1, -3) and Dr. Ludwig Bledow, losing (+4, =1, -7). He also played matches against some of the great players of his day, losing to Paul Morphy (+0, =1, -7) in 1859, Daniel Harrwitz (+0, =1, -7) in 1860 and Wilhelm Steinitz (+0, =0, -7) in 1863.

Jul-31-04  SBC: Thanks to whomever compiled these Mongredien games
Apr-26-05  takeithome: Augustus Mongredien (1807-1888). Although his record with Morphy was awful, he did manage to extend Anderssen somewhat. But then again, who didn't extend Anderssen and his love for attack-attack-attack and little defense-defense-defense? Anyway, the author of a Morphy game anthology mentions that "Mongredien was something of a humorist, to play thus against Morphy." Despite his unfortunate liking for inferior variations, he did manage a draw against Morphy in their first match game.

  Eric Schiller: Give the old guy credit,he did play inventive openings. True, they often got clobbered, for example Steinitz vs Mongredien, 1863 but Mongredien's use of Scandinavian and Double-Fianchetto defenses shows his creative spirit.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Poor guy. Once upon a time, the Modern Defense was sometimes called the Mongredien. However, if you look closely, you can find the "modern" in "Mongredien."
