Clement Fraud
Member since Nov-24-16 · Last seen Aug-22-17
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.

   Aug-07-17 J Houska vs P Shaw, 2017
Clement Fraud: A splendid game from Peter Shaw. At our chess club tonight, Peter annotated that 18.Qe2 was an error (correct was the immediate 18.Qb5!). Also wrong was 27... Rd2+? (more forcing was 27... Be7!); and 49... h3? could've been met with 50.Rd3! (forcing a draw)...
   Jul-21-17 Nisipeanu vs Kramnik, 2017
Clement Fraud: 11.g3 was a good finesse; but 21.Rb4 was - I feel - a mistake (and 21.Rg1+ would've been better).
   Jun-21-17 C Chaplin vs Reshevsky, 1923
Clement Fraud: <Olavi> Many thanks for your research
   Jun-18-17 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: For black to find a viable plan in the dinosaur Giuoco Pianissimo is not easy. I think black misfired with the idea of 14... exd4 15... c5 & 16... b5. Surely the whole point behind 13... h6 was to prepare the e6 square for the Bishop: Eg. 14... Be6 (maybe) with the idea of ...
   May-28-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Clement Fraud: 5.O-O seems curiously passive. 5.d4 appears more appropriate to me (with the intention of of recapturing with the Queen following an exchange of pawns).
   May-20-17 Kasparov vs Short, 1993
Clement Fraud: In view of his deficit in score at this point of the match, and also in view of his daring nature... I wonder why Nigel Short did not try the Hennig-Schara Gambit (which became an option for black after white played 3.Nc3)?
   May-20-17 Tal vs Hjartarson, 1987
Clement Fraud: <Eduardo Bermundez> Yes indeed... the white queen's knight finishing up on black's KN1 square; and in the final position, every single one of white's pieces is taking part in the mating attack! In this game, Tal really lives up to Bronstein's view of chess as "part ...
   Apr-01-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Clement Fraud: The FIDE Congress' acceptance of the "first to ten wins" Cramer proposal (setting a thirty-six game limit and rejecting the "nine wins apiece champion retains title" idea) in 1974 was absolutely correct. Matches for the world championship ought to be settled in this way now...
   Mar-28-17 Topalov vs Judit Polgar, 2008
Clement Fraud: <Takya Kotov: 37. Qa6 is a grandmaster move. It appears to do nothing, but it is very good.> Beautifully put Mr Kotov... the word is "Karpovian"!
   Feb-21-17 P Shaw vs Adams, 2016
Clement Fraud: A very fine game indeed from Peter Shaw. I once had the privilege of playing Peter myself at an inter-club championship match at Netherton (around seven or eight years ago); needless to say I lost. I feel sure that Peter will be winning games against grandmasters before the ...
