Sorry, I'm out of time to complete the game. Please, any other archivist is welcome to finish it since I can't do more until later this afternoon. On DD1 I got some of what was said though not all of it.

Looks like André puts an acute accent on the e when writing his name out. He's just Andre in the archive. Not sure what the policy is there or if it's worth changing the name or would just make him harder to search for.

J! Archive's protocol seems to be to show players' full names the way they're shown on the Chyron, but when referred to by first name only, to display how they actually signed in. If you view any clue that André got, you'll see the accent mark.

Gotcha. Good to know. I wonder how the capitalization was determined for DuVoisin.

Looks like no capital V on his LinkedIn page.

But no accent either. Interesting.

Finally done: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6317

As Bamaman pointed out this completes not just the 1991 CC, but all of the CCs.

For DuVoisin see here: viewtopic.php?p=310686#p310686

André did his best to stay competitive, but he couldn't neutralize Scott and make up a $15,000 deficit at the same time. In the end, his pre-FJ $12,800 is the highest I know of for a player in second place in pre-doubled times. (Next highest is Joe Carroll's $12,400 in Michael Daunt's second game. The record for all clue values appears to be Adam Levin's $27,000 against James Holzhauer.)
