Clement Fraud
Member since Nov-24-16 · Last seen Oct-17-17
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.

   Oct-10-17 A Sokolov vs Kasparov, 1988 (replies)
Clement Fraud: <Whitehat1963> I think that black resigned here simply because of his material deficit (incurred from having blundered the Queen eight moves earlier)... perhaps?
   Sep-30-17 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: 16... Nd8 began an audacious maneuver from the world champion: Over the course of the next seven moves Fabiano wasted four moves with his light squared Bishop (two of the four moves being forced). These losses of time must have been the factor that swung the initiative to ...
   Sep-29-17 M J Tempone vs J Perez-Cascella, 2001
Clement Fraud: How about: 9.Be3 c5 10.dc6 Nc6 11.Qd2 ???
   Sep-26-17 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I reckon that in years to come, this game will be remembered as "Kramnik's Nemesis". Against Kasparov in 2000, Vladimir's match winning strategy involved playing in a very similar style as James Tarjan did here; but I do applaud Mr Kramnik for at least trying to thwart his ...
   Sep-23-17 Caruana vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: A very interesting game: On his third move black had the option of playing the Hennig-Schara Gambit (3... c5 4.cd5 cd4). With the white pieces, grandmasters often like to prevent the possibility of playing against the Hennig-Schara by developing their King's Knight first (1.d4
   Sep-23-17 W Schmidt vs J Lewi, 1968 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I must be improving - if only a little: I quickly saw the the idea of vacating the d5 square for the Queen via the sacrifice Rd6, but I failed to see the forcing sequence. I was looking at 34.Bh6 gh6 & 35.Rd6 (white having opened the file for his Rook on the g-file, and the ...
   Sep-22-17 V Fedoseev vs D Bocharov, 2016 (replies)
Clement Fraud: Oh dear, I guess that I form part of this site's "weaker Kibitz brethren": I saw 23.Rc6 readily enough, but I was thinking more in terms of preventing black's QP from blockading on d5, plus white's attack on f7 (eg 24.Bd5 & 25.Qf3). In short, I completely missed all of ...
   Sep-20-17 W So vs Ding Liren, 2017
Clement Fraud: The sheer originality of Ding Loren's play is the centerpiece here: To activate his Queen via the a7 square was inspired to say the least (if unconventional). I think that black might've been able to retain the tension better by not swapping light squared Bishops on move 14 (I
   Sep-15-17 F Vallejo Pons vs W So, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I was of the understanding that in this line of the Caro-Kann 4.g4 is best met with 4... Bd7; and yet in this game Wesley So demonstrates just how feeble are the kingside pawn advances of white. This game should bring about a resurgence of interest in the Caro-Kann after Anand
   Sep-12-17 Kramnik vs Ivanchuk, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: It is interesting to see Kramnik outplayed as white in a Caro-Kann Defense... especially if you compare this game with the one that he won against Leko in the 2004 World Championship: Kramnik vs Leko, 2004
