Amateur player, more enthusiastic than strong.

I am a 50 years old French, working in the Middle East, and this site is one of my favorite pass-time when I am off work.

I am an amateur player. I used to like strategic players and games, and now I enjoy more tactical ones, maybe because I am more receptive to entertaining games than subtle profound ones.

My favorite players include Kasparov, Fischer, Tal, Spassky, Bronstein, Capablanca, Alekhine, Morphy but some other players and their games get my admiration like Andersen, Blackburne, Zuckertort, Mieses, Nezhmedtinov or the Polgars, and even some lesser known like Hartlaub, Diemer or Schmidt.

I enjoy watching good games, some played by unknown as you can find in my game collections.

Nowadays players I enjoy watching the games of include Morozevich, Nakamura, Aronian, Anand, Topalov and Vachier-Lagrave. Carlsen imaginative play is both fascinating and a delight to watch as well.

MJCB: I was impressed - like many (if not all) - by the final combination. One thing that impressed me also with Karjakin - when looking at the video - is that when he played 49 ... Rh7, he seems not to expect a forced mate to come (he did not seem to have seen 50 Qh6 coming), but when it ...

MJCB: Neat finish
 
   Oct-28-16 A Zakirova vs Taja Guid, 2016 (replies)
 
MJCB: Seems like 52 Qxd6+ speeds up the win.
 
   Jul-06-16 Denker vs H Avram, 1940
 
MJCB: The last move Qf3 impressed me a lot. Simple but deadly.
 
   May-02-16 Lahno vs A Goryachkina, 2016 (replies)
 
MJCB: The work of the Knights is indeed impressive.
 
   Feb-17-16 Fischer vs O Celle, 1964 (replies)
 
MJCB: It took me time to understand why 23 f6+ first instead of the immediate 23 Rf1+ . In "my" variation (23 Rf1+), I win the queen like Fisher, but I subsequently lose a rook, unlike Fisher!

   Nov-27-15 Wei Yi vs Zhao Jun, 2015 (replies)
 
MJCB: Nice finish, setting a tempo for if Kh8 or Kf8, white wins by force with h6.
 
   Nov-13-15 Panno vs Guimard, 1955
 
MJCB: After 27 ♗b5 , black can escape with 27... ♘b4 , 28 ♖x♖ ♘d5+
 
   Oct-18-15 Anderssen vs Falkbeer, 1851
 
MJCB: Fascinating how this mating attack was built by Andersen. On move 30 g4, I was really wondering what Andersen was trying to achieve, and it came nicely to my eyes move after move. The coordination of white pieces was very creative and powerful. A delight to watch.
