Clement Fraud
Member since Nov-24-16 · Last seen Mar-17-18
I live in the United Kingdom; my own playing strength (as ELO gradings might measure it) is roughly between 1500 & 1600; my favorite players are Veselin Topalov, Anatoly Karpov and Viswanathan Anand.

   Mar-04-18 A Speijer vs F Englund, 1913 (replies)
Clement Fraud: Evening All, Tonight I've been commiserating a thoroughly rotten run of my overall form. In response to 1.d4, it has long been said that 1... d5 is the only correct reply (for various reasons). It does seem bizarre, however, that one has to go back over a century to find a ...
   Feb-22-18 Anand vs Kiril D Georgiev, 1997
Clement Fraud: I reckon that for white to place his light squared Bishop on e2 is an improvement over 7.f3 : For instance, 7.Be2 O-O 8.Qd2 Nc6 9.O-O-O Bd7 10.Rg1 Rc8 11.g4 Ne5 (maybe?) 12.f3 Nc4 (maybe?) 13.Bxc4 Rxc4 14.h4... and I feel sure that white must have a clear edge ...
   Jan-29-18 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I feel the need to commend Vladimir Kramnic for his patient resilience in finding a better way to contest the Caro-Kann - this following a couple of big defeats that he suffered whilst using the Exchange Variation: Kramnik vs V Fedoseev, 2017 and Kramnik vs Ivanchuk, 2017
   Jan-21-18 A Giri vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Clement Fraud: <pth: Why is this game classified as an uncommon opening?> I have been pondering the same question: After the completion of six moves, the position reached in this game (by transposition of moves) is the Panov-Botvinnik Attack of the Caro-Kann.
   Jan-14-18 Caruana vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
Clement Fraud: My goodness - at the London Classic in December we had Adams vs Nakamura, 2017 clashing in a rare Dragon Sicilian; and here Gawain Jones chances his arm with a King's Indian against the mighty Fabiano Caruana... and gets a draw!!! It could be argued that Fabiano played too ...
   Jan-13-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I have to say that I'm a big fan of Mr Caruana, but I wish he'd chosen something sharper than the Petroff Defense for this inaugural game.
   Jan-08-18 Topalov vs Kasparov, 2005
Clement Fraud: <ChessHigherPower> <so maybe 15...e5 really would have worked, it's just hard to believe that both Kasparov and Topalov would have missed it in a slow game.> Those are my thoughts entirely.
   Jan-02-18 Keres vs Feigin, 1937 (replies)
Clement Fraud: My thoughts entirely.
   Dec-30-17 Fischer vs Stein, 1967 (replies)
Clement Fraud: Something I've noticed about this famous game - an interesting intricacy - is that at the completion of move thirteen black is exactly one tempo down on a standard Breyer variation of the Lopez. If you compare this game (after move thirteen) with the Breyer variation at the ...
   Dec-25-17 Judit Polgar vs Morozevich, 2000
Clement Fraud: It seems to me - after much contemplation - that when black recaptures with his NP rather than the Bishop (6... gxf6), he can still safely castle kingside and put his plan into practice. White has just traded off her dark squared Bishop - the very piece that's needed to ...
