  whiteshark: player of the day

What did he from 1922 onwards ?

  brankat: It looks like Mr.Marchand was quite successful for some 5-6 years period (1916-22), albeit in second-3rd rate tournaments of the period.

Five days younger than Capablanca! I guess that explains it :-)

R.I.P. master Marchand.
