FIDE player card for Olivier Renet

(born Dec-21-1964, 58 years old) France

[what is this?]

Grandmaster (1990).

He won the title of champion of Paris twice: in 1995 and 2015 (in 1984, he won the championship of Paris but the title of champion of Paris went to Alain Fayard, first Frenchman of the tournament of the capitals of the European community).

In July 1989, he was the first French player to pass the 2,500-point mark in the Elo Ranking. He was many times champion of France with his club Clichy. Olivier Renet finished second in the France chess championship, tied on points with the champion (beaten in the tiebreaker by Gilles Miralles in 1986 and Marc Santo-Roman in 1991).

Today, he is mainly dedicated to the training of players.

Apr-21-07  Tomlinsky: And when I see the sign that points one way
The lot we used to pass by every day

Just walk away Renee
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

  FSR: We need to find a game where Renet's king is under attack and flees to the other side of the board, so we can caption it "Just Walk Away, Renet."

RENET, Olivier

Dec-16-13  waustad: A very bad game by him might get a pun using Junk It, and yes I know that it is necessary to butcher the French to make it work.
