  norami: Possibly the best example in all of chess of White sacrificing as many pieces as he can as fast as he can and then checkmating.

  fredthebear: Bob Renaut only has one game in the database, but it's a scorcher! With such style, it wouldn't be a surprise if he had a role in the famous poker movie "The Cincinnati Kid" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfn...

He would have had to have had an exceptional memory. Both Volodin Smirnov and Tikhonov are also just credited with one game.

If you pulled this out your memory, I will build an altar in my home and revere you as a God! :-)

Yeah, don't do that. :-) This game rang a faint bell for me, so I used the "similar games" feature to find Smirnov-Tikhonov. In any case, I'm living proof that a good memory is not enough to make someone a good chessplayer.

I think Smirnov is a little bit better known than his representation on cg.com would indicate. Bronstein praised him in his notes to Smyslov vs Euwe, 1953 -- I've posted what he wrote to the Smirnov page and the Smirnov-Tikhonov page.

  GrahamClayton: Renaut's two remaining pieces force mate, while NN's four pieces remain undeveloped on their starting squares.

Same as many another strong player of the pre-computer epoch, in DBs which have far more games than cg.
