Isidore Weiss

Isidore Weiss (1867 - June 12, 1936) was a Frenchman who became the first world champion in draughts. He won eight world championships from 1894 to 1909, a record not matched until Alexei Chizhov nearly a century later.

In the game the Coup Weiss is a refinement of the Coup de l'Expresse named for him.
