(1928-1984)

Born in Luxembourg, Henri Venbacker has perhaps done more than anyone else to make Mornington Crescent the game it is today. Although never a very prominent player of the game, Venbacker was a keen follower of the IMCS International League, and oversaw all official game transcripts between 1947 and 1983.

Perhaps most famous for establishing the Venbacker Ratio, Venbacker Notation and Venbacker Number, Venbacker had also been involved in virtually all IMCS rule amendments throughout the 1950s and 60s (including notable work with Ernst Maelberg), and was an active member of the central ruling committee until his death in 1984.
