Legall de Kermeur[ edit ]

Legall de Kermeur (1702 - 1792) was a French chess player.

Along with other famous players, he played in Paris´s Café de la Régence, and is considered to have been possibly the strongest player in the world around the 1730s. He taught chess to Francois-André Philidor.

Legall is the eponym of Legall´s mate, a mating pattern found in his only extant game, Legall-St Brie, Paris, 1750.
