Kibitzer's Corner
May-08-18  zanzibar: Guyard is likely <Gaston Guyard>


He's mentioned in some of the German literature, but only as <Guyard> (as far as I can tell = afaict).

Can anybody identify the source of the one game? Was it part of the 12-board blindfold simul Pillsbury gave?

May-08-18  zanzibar: Lemarchand might be associated with Rouen:

Which could be helpful, biographically.

May-08-18  zanzibar: Then again, there's a lot of Lemarchand's in Rouen:

(Plus Lemarchand isn't exactly such a good name to search on!)

May-08-18  zanzibar: Winter has another Lemarchand game:

Though for a guy who's big on sources, it's a bit unsatisfactory - he only attributes the game to his correspondent - we are left without any idea where the correspondent found the game.

In other words, there's no primary source (and one really needs to earns one stripes to be considered a reliable secondary source).

May-09-18  zanzibar: OK, not sure how much effort this deserves, but a challenge is a challenge...

Perhaps "A. Le Marchand"?!

Which makes the name nearly impossible to search on, fwiw.

  Telemus: <zanzibar: Though for a guy who's big on sources, it's a bit unsatisfactory - he only attributes the game to his correspondent - we are left without any idea where the correspondent found the game.> Do you speak of "Eugène Chatard and Edouard Pape – Lemarchand and L. Maurat"? This is the only Lemarchand game I can see there, and below the game there is: <Source: with comments by Taubenhaus: La Stratégie, 20 June 1902, pages 182-183. A briefer set of notes by Taubenhaus was reproduced in Les Cahiers de L’Echiquier Français, issue 37 (September-October 1933), pages 152-153.> In C.N. 8554 it has the same references.
