Aug-17-06  edo.chess: Regarding the Seguin who was one of the 8 who played Morphy in his blindfold simul. at the Cafe de la Regence in Paris in 1858, R.M Devens says: "it was half-past ten before M. Seguin, No. 8, a very old gentleman, who contended with great desperation, was beaten." (from Our First Century, by R.M. Devens, 1876. See

According to Gaige's Chess Personalia, CA Seguin was 78 at his death in 1887. This would make him about 49 years old at the time of Morphy's visit. If this is the right Seguin, then it is interesting that Devens should describe him as "very old"!

Mar-04-13  rigoletto: That Morphy vs. C A Seguin is in the page below as M. Seguin.

There is also a game from M.Seguin playing a Philidor trap in "Tratado general de Ajedrez I" by Grau.

Jun-10-13  thomastonk: <rigoletto> When a French player is named M. ..., then this means often only Monsieur. In the case of Morphy's blindfold simultaneous exhibition, all oponents were listed as MM. and every single one as M. ..., please see and the following pages.

  MissScarlett: Whether or not he played Morphy, the Steinitz game certainly isn't him.
