New web editor: Jean Olivier Leconte
As already described in the article CH&LS with a new board, we have a new web editor. He introduces himself with a few lines:
Jean Olivier Leconte, 53 years old, I live just outside Paris in the small town of Saint-Mandé and I work in a bank as a database administrator.
I have been playing chess for over 40 years ... I am a FIDE Master, Senior International Correspondence Master, and President of a chess club.
For a little over 10 years, I have been writing articles (in French and Russian) for my website on the history of the Café de la Régence and more generally on the history of chess in Paris: https://lecafedelaregence.blogspot.com/
I also wrote a book in two volumes in French about the history of the Café de la Régence, and co-author of the book of the 100th anniversary of the French Chess Federation (see Special offer for members: La France et son apport dans le jeu d'échecs).
Frank Hoffmeister asked me to be a member of the board of the CH&LS. And so I became the web editor of our association.
If you want to publish an article on our site, you can write to me at email@example.com
Thank you, and see you in Marostica in September 2022!
Jean Olivier Leconte
