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: Bird's guest.
   Aug-12-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
JPi: Maxime strategy: long term advantage by an absolute control of d5 square, and the way he executed it reminds me Karpov or Carlsen at their best; however I doubt that Najdorf defence is at issue. Black should have open the game before it was too late. 10...d5!? seems convenient for this ...

JPi: If this page has been Wesley So's I suspect that after such victory at St Louis, 100 pages will have been wrote in few minutes. Congratulations Maxime! Wonderful games and a due first place in this Super Tournament. Bravo !!
   Aug-11-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
JPi: Congratulations to Maxime for winning alone his first super Tournament! He played most of it very well (My only regret is the game vs Svidler.). Too much has been said about the World champion, finishing second in such field isn't bad. It isn't the first time in Chess history a world ...
   Aug-11-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
JPi: <<devere> I'll be happy if he qualifies to play Carlsen. That would be a very entertaining match.> Most of the games of this match will be a real challenge. I'm pretty sure that neither Magnus or Maxime will play it with a drawish strategy.
   Aug-10-17 Anand vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
JPi: Good result for Maxime. The last round Maxime will have White and an "easiest" than Aronian and Anand the other leaders of the tournament.
   Aug-08-17 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
JPi: Sure the position is equal nevertheless Black chances are becoming interesting. Seeing how Magnus has the same day put pressure in a Rook ending where "e" passed pawn obviously can't bepromoted without major mistake from his opponent, I'm pretty sure he will pursue the fight here. One ...
   Aug-06-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
JPi: I mean 43.Bh7. But overall the edge doesn't look enough.
   Aug-06-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Svidler, 2017
JPi: A pity Maxime jeopardized his chance after a clever opening strategy (Getting a valuable LSB vs N) . Simply 25.Bg6 and g4-g5...
   Aug-05-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
JPi: Maybe angry to have not win his game vs Svidler he gave here a wonderful fight. Congrats Maxime. With my best memory from your stay in Japan.
