Every checkers player knows about Woldouby'sfamous position. This 21 year-old Senegalese drew a lot of attention in Parisin 1910 when he won against all challengers in his store located in theSenegalese village of the Exposition of Jardin d'Acclimatation zoologique. Noone understood how this player could win all the games that fast. After AmadouKandie Woldouby was the second African who participated in a checkerstournament in Paris since he became the city champion in 1911. In 1911 he leftFrance and no one knew his whereabouts since then. In this biography we showthat Weiss' golpe (shot) actually was Woldouby's golpe, since he won againstIsidore Weiss with it. On the other hand we want to show that Woldouby returnedto Senegal in 1911 to take the place of a checkers runner-up in 1913. Hisbiography deserves a worthy place in the history of checkers, as he was theprominent predecessor of the famous Senegalese checkers player Baba Sy.
