Aug-26-03  Ribeiro: Thanks,!
Feb-03-06  BIDMONFA: Raul Sanguineti


Feb-03-06  yoozum: A bloody good player.
Feb-03-08  brankat: One of those masters who, for their own different reasons, never fully extended himself. Still, he had left us some fine chess games.

Happy Birthday Mr.Sanguinetti!

  Benzol: Is Renato Sanguineti related at all or a completely different player altogether?
Feb-03-08  brankat: <Benzol> I think Renato Sanguineti is a different player, an older one. Perhaps a father or an uncle.

Also, there is probably mistake with the first 3 games listed above. I think they are Renato's.

You will notice:

-- The games were played between 1945-47, then a gap of 7 years.

-- RAUL Sanguuineti was 12-13 years old at the time. It is highly unlikely he was playing Najdorf and J.Bolbochan in Mar del Plata at that age.

-- At the same time RENATO Sanguineti was active consistently 1944-1950, while competing with the likes of Najdorf, Pilnik, Eliskases, Euwe, Gligoric, Rosetto, Bolbochan.

-- Also, it is quite likely, that the last game played by RENATO, listed on his page here, is actually the one against Gligoric, 1950.

-- Then there is a 5 year gap. The last 2 listed were most likely RAUL'S games. By that time he was in full stride.

  Benzol: <brankat> Thanks. You may be right. I wonder whether <von Krolock> would know for sure?
Feb-03-08  brankat: <Benzol> Yes, <vonKrolock> may know. The Sanguinetis were from his neighborhood :-)
Feb-03-08  vonKrolock: <Benzol, brankat> Sure they are two differents <R. Sanguineti>. Much more references to Raúl, for instance in the statistics of Nice to discover he was born in Paraná - therefore a 'paranaense' like myself, but this can be somewhat misleading, because the argentinian city is not that closely related to the brasilian State - not like the sister cities of Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil and Puerto Iguazú in Argentina :)
Feb-03-08  Calli: An additional complication is a third player. Jorge Sanguineti is listed, for instance, as the player in R Sanguineti vs Eliskases, 1953 by Chessbase.
Feb-03-08  Caissanist: <One of those masters who, for their own different reasons, never fully extended himself. Still, he had left us some fine chess games.>

Well, you could say pretty much the same thing about most of South America's best players from the last century. Unless they were willing and able to live in Europe most of the time, or wealthy enough to buy lots of expensive plane tickets, there just wasn't any way for them to get enough games against top competition.

  Honza Cervenka: Does anybody know here, why Raul Sanguineti suddenly disappeared from international chess scene after 1977?
Aug-13-21  Z truth 000000001: <Honza> the following suggests he was still active in 1978:

(South African Open was held in Durban: 9.5/11)

  Troller: <Raûl was very talented but lazy. Once I asked Panno how Raûl was doing: -Well, he is fine but his laziness keeps getting worse. Last time I saw him playing bridge in Club Argentino de Ajedrez he had brought a secretary to hold his cards.>
