Clement Fraud
Member since Nov-24-16 · Last seen Dec-15-17
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.

   Dec-11-17 Anand vs W So, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: It is very unpleasant to see an all time great get pushed around as Anand has been in this tournament. Might 27.Nd4 c5 28.Nf5 (Queen to wherever) & 29.Nfe3 have been a possible defense for white?
   Dec-10-17 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2017
Clement Fraud: <blackdranzer:> <This game has almost refuted the Qf3 line.> Is it likely that white could have saved himself the wasted moves with his Queen by playing 10.h3 (and if 10... Nh5 11.Qh2 ... with f2-f4 to come)?
   Dec-07-17 Adams vs Nakamura, 2017
Clement Fraud: It is a rare privilege indeed to see two modern day super GM's thrash it out in a Dragon Sicilian: The responsibility was always with black to prove that he had compensation (for his isolated queen-side pawns) following the exchange of Knights on move eleven. I was wondering ...
   Dec-05-17 Carlsen vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I was viewing this game live yesterday; but unfortunately I had to abandon it following Carlsen's lengthy think when he played 16.Qc2 (I had predicted 16.Qd2). One thing that struck me was when Anand played 5... c5 - couldn't the game then have transposed to a QGD Tarrasch ...
   Nov-24-17 Hector vs C Hartman, 1996
Clement Fraud: I don't know whether to laugh or cry at my competence regarding today's puzzle: I saw 1.Nfh5 gh5 2.Nh5 Qg5 very quickly, but after this my "over the board" analysis became murky. I think I even saw the possibility of white winning black's Queen, but wasn't sure who would ...
   Nov-11-17 Timman vs Short, 1993
Clement Fraud: 14.Rab1 would have given white the advantage; and in view of this, therefore, 11... c6 does seem a little passive. Might the future of this line rest on 11... Nc6 (?)
   Nov-11-17 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015
Clement Fraud: 8.Ne5 and 12.Ndf3 ceded all control of white's important e4 square; both these moves gave an open invitation to black's king-knight to jump into e4... from where it caused havoc. I don't think that theory has come anywhere near to providing white with a sound and competitive ...
   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 ???
