Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-08  Karpova: Jose Raul Capablanca: <When I visited Holland in September 1911, a young man called Baudet who was studying engineering at the University of The Hague, was the most promising Dutch player of the time. One day we may find him playing in major tournaments. Young Baudet is addicted to endgames, which he generally plays very commendably.>

From pages 52-53 of the 31 May 1912 "Capablanca-Magazine".

Edward Winter adds that P. J. H. Baudet died in early 1922 (Obituary on page 85 of the March 1922 "British Chess Magazine").

  GrahamClayton: Pierre Joseph Henry Baudet (Jan 22, 1891-1921) was born in Baarn, the son of a medical superintendent. Baudet graduated from the Gymnasium in The Hague in 1908. As well as playing chess, Baudet was an an accomplished cello player. Baudet enrolled at a student of mathematics at Leiden University in 1908, obtaining his master's degree in 1914. He then returned to the Gymnasium in Hague until 1919, before being appointed as a Professor at the University of Technology at Delft.

Baudet was involved with Emanuel Lasker in the development of the board game "Laskagame":

Baudet founded a Lasca society in the Hague, and a national tournament, but the day before the tournament Baudet passed away.

Biography & Games - 'Hoe sterk schaakte overgrootvader Baudet?'


Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: <The Hague (AFP) - A former academic with a love of classical allusions and naked poolside Instagram photos, Thierry Baudet has stunned the Dutch political world with his victory in provincial elections.

The latest in a line of flamboyant Dutch populists, 36-year-old Baudet and his Forum for Democracy party have been on the scene for less than two years.

He has used good looks and social media to soften the edges of a strong anti-immigration, anti-EU and climate change-sceptic message that echoes other right-wingers across Europe.

But he also has a history of controversial utterances and alliances that have led critics to describe him as the telegenic European face of a Donald Trump-style alt-right politics.>

Ehhhhhh.....any relation!?
