sycophante
Member since Mar-25-14 · Last seen Oct-22-17
I live in central Quebec.

-I admire players like Jobava, Kholmov, Nezhmetdinov...

-I also enjoy reading Céline and Baudelaire, among so many others.

-Played by Tatiana Nikolayeva, Bach's Partitas are, I suppose, my favorite music recording (although Brüggen's Telemann is worth mentioning)

All my game collections are under permanent construction. Just like the road network around where you live.

My official over-the-board rating is somehow very far from what you first expected, but is, I guarantee you, fully deserved.

   Apr-21-17 L Van Vliet vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1907
 
sycophante: Except for guarding g4, was 15.h3 achieving anything else for White?
 
   Mar-17-17 V Diu vs Wei Yi, 2017 (replies)
 
sycophante: Wei Yi losing in 19 moves? With 13...h4 he might have overlooked White's reply 14.f4. White got the excellent f4 and c4 squares for his bishops.
 
   Mar-02-17 Caruana vs Ponomariov, 2014
 
sycophante: What's the strategic idea behind 12.b3, compared to an immediate g4 push? It looks very counterintuitive to weaken the c3 pawn and the a3 square.

sycophante: He doesn't seem to have a website or a blog. I'd like to follow his current activities, tournaments. According to 2700chess.com he plays sometimes in the Swedish league, but what is he up to now?
 
   Nov-27-16 Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2000 (replies)
 
sycophante: <st.dvy: Now the Berlin is still causing so much trouble for white at the highest levels, that many 1.e4 players are actually switching...> For instance? Could someone give a few examples of players who effectively stopped playing e4 because of the Berlin? I hear this ...
 
   Sep-08-16 C Lelievre vs M Francois, 2015 (replies)
 
sycophante: 18... Nf5 looks solid for Black. Then 19.exf8=Q Kxf8 20.g4 d5
 
   Mar-16-16 Carlsen vs P Nikolic, 2005 (replies)
 
sycophante: Appart from the beautiful ending combination, I really enjoy the way Carlsen played the opening. Very smooth and natural, culminating with Ba3. In fact, after 14 moves, White has four developped pieces (and ready for action) and his King castled, while Black has only three pieces
 
   Feb-23-16 Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 (replies)
 
sycophante: <Razgriz> Your line starts well, but: 22. Rxe7+ Qxe7 23. Rxc8+ Rxc8 24. Qxc8+ Qd8 25. Qxd8 Kxd8 26. Nxh7 1-0
 
   Feb-19-16 J M Bellon Lopez vs Dzindzichashvili, 1992
 
sycophante: Kicking a horse in the mill.
 
   Jan-22-16 S Suvrajit vs G Singh, 2004
 
sycophante: According to GM Henley, after 22...Ng4+ 23.Kf3 (to protect e3 pawn), Black has 23...Qd1+!! 24.Rxd1 Rxe3 25.Bxe3 Rxe3#
