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.
