My name is Pineau Jacques-Marie, I'm born in March 14 which could explain my nickname "JPi" 3.14... French by nationality I live in Japan since 1986. I was Chess Champion of this country in 1987 and 1994. I tried and still Ifm trying to develop Chess in Japan. I wrote few book in Japanese to promote Chess. Alas I was expelled from Japanese Chess Association in 1999 to have made publicity of invitations to a famous Open of the North of France, Cappelle, I negotiated for the second time to JCA (The first time mostly nobody was informed of this very generous invitations). I mostly stopped to play chess at international level from this time (My last international as a regular Chess player was Los Angeles 34th Annual American Open in which I finished 8 with a performance of 2494 Elo. Missing a win in one game which ended draw, losing an equal position in another game, I could do better, therefore meeting my Japanese wife's distant family I kept wonderful times of my travel in US). Still giving during 10 years the invitations I received from Cappelle I mostly give up tournament chess from 1999 still of course I enjoy casual games with friends. During 12 years I have realized few events between chess and shogi community. In Japan there is nearly 10 millions of shogi fans. Shogi is Japanese Chess with offers few similarity with International Chess, I feel natural to develop chess among shogi players. The seeming natural play of memorable champions like Morphy, Capablanca, Fischer make great impression on me but I enjoy also the complexity of Steinitz, Nimzowitsch, Botvinnik... Among the new wave I'm impressed by the fighting spirit of Nakamura, the logical touch of Giri and the self confidence of Carlsen. Of course this list could be longer.

JPi: If Maxime had not tried to gain a slightly inferior position and simply exchange the pieces as he knows how to do on multiple critical occasions the game would have been equal. This defeat seems to me much more psychological than technical (Here according to their strengths Caruana play
   Apr-06-18 M Bluebaum vs Anand, 2018 (replies)
JPi: Yes <Cornier> 19...Nc6 was the "normal" move but in a total drawish mind. Anand' s mistake was to select such defence if he intended to win with Black.

JPi: <Pedro Fernandez> Yesterday you asked cleverly why Vitiugov could challenge the world very top like Maxime Vachier Lagrave who is nearly 50 points Elo up to him. I had a look on his games. Vitiugov is a very solid player. Maybe taking more risk will help his rating to grown up but

JPi: Vitiugov is a very solid player.
   Apr-06-18 Vitiugov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014
JPi: No deciding the square of the King (d7;e7;g8) by 20...Rc1 was a serious alternative.
   Apr-06-18 Grischuk vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017
JPi: Immediately putting pressure on f7, 14.Ng5 seems more natural. 14...f6? 15.Nxh7 Or 14...h6 15.Nxf7! Finally on 14...Be7 15.Qh5 BxN 16.QxB and only now h4-h5.
   Apr-05-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
JPi: 20.d5! played. Now if I have to choose I will take White.
   Apr-04-18 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
JPi: With Black Maxime has very well negotiated the type of pressure imposed by which the World Champion is usually so effective.
   Apr-02-18 Yifan Hou vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
JPi: Agree. Indeed Hou Yifan was able to draw vs Anand and got more than decent positions against Carlsen and Maxime but somehow around move 25 she failed to find the right plan. Here 22.e4?! is going nowhere. 22.Ne3! then 23.Qa5 looking on a6 and c7 was better. On Carlsen' game 23...Bh8 ...

JPi: Ba7 looks more healthy than Bg3...
