  MissScarlett: Most sources give the player as <M Frentz>. Whence Robert?

  whiteshark: <<R.> Frentz> according to the Paris 1933 crosstable: http://www.rogerpaige.webspace.virg...

  MissScarlett: I suspect 'most' sources are channeling Skinner & Verhoeven. They have a tournament cross-table for Paris 1933, with <M Frentz>, citing <La Strategie>. <M> probably stands for <Monsieur>.
May-18-18  zanzibar: <MissS> + others ...

but, but, ...

I have a contemporaneous source listing all the other players with prenom initials - suggesting his prenom starts with M.

See this game:

[Round "?"]
[White "Jung, L."]
[Black "Frentz, M. "]
[Result "1-0"]

[EventDate "1933.09.10"]
[Source "Comoedia (Paris) 1933-09-24 p4"]
[Notes "Frentz, M. (M is indeed prenom) is given as Fance in source, but see prev week column"]

E.g. source uses M. L. Jung...

Now I know <stonehenge>'s cites an authoritative site, but given my contemporaneous source I need another to break the deadlock.

Whence, indeed.

May-18-18  zanzibar: OK, the lesson is jamais trust la lettre M en franšais.

<R. Frentz> and <M.(!) Jung> --

<R. Frentz> et sans Jung! --

<Frentz>, <R. Frentz> and <L. Jung> --

Oo la la.

May-18-18  zanzibar: OK, my bad - Fance is from France, (Maxime Fance), L. Jung is Lucien, and the game I cited from a tournoi subsidiaire, and not the principle Championnat.

May-18-18  zanzibar: Let's note the correct name this time round...

  Retireborn: <z> That Tarta game was played in round 8, if my Big 2002 database is to be trusted. They have 32 games from the tournament.

They also use M.Frentz, but more shockingly they replace Cukierman with Bernard Zuckerman (b.1943!)
