Clement Fraud
Member since Nov-24-16 · Last seen Dec-03-23
I live in the United Kingdom; my own playing strength (as ELO gradings might measure it) is roughly between 1500 & 1600; my favorite players are Veselin Topalov, Anatoly Karpov and Viswanathan Anand.

   Nov-28-23 Niemann vs I Sokolov, 2023 (replies)
Clement Fraud: 19... Kh8 looks weak to me. I personally reckon that 19... Kh7 would have been stronger; this idea to be followed by 20... g6!? (possibly 🤔)
   Nov-21-23 N Salimova vs O Kiolbasa, 2023 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I have just seen this incredible game reviewed on agadmator's Chess: following 18... Qd8, Black's position had become hopelessly backward. Even so, 36.Rd1 began an idea which... even Tal himself would've been hard pressed to find ! A Queen+Rook sacrifice like no other 😲
   Oct-30-23 Mamedyarov vs A Rosell, 2023
Clement Fraud: Alvar Alonso Rosell isn't a name I'm familiar with; but Rosell's performance here - against the brilliant Mamedyarov - is something to behold! It took me a while to figure out the reasoning behind 27... Qxa4!? : if White accepts the offer (28.bxa4), he would then be forced ...
   Oct-17-23 A Tang vs Caruana, 2023
Clement Fraud: 'Indian Game' 🤔 ___ it looked more like a 'Barry Attack' from where I'm sitting. 5.Be5 looked terrible; 5.h4 would appear more purposeful.
   Oct-11-23 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981 (replies)
Clement Fraud: <Messiah> Hello I am no grandmaster (not even a likely 1600); and yet, I can't help thinking that 22.Qe1 is bad. I can see the need White has for protecting his back-rank; but to decentralize his Queen - at this particular moment - seems a passive method of achieving ...
   Oct-07-23 Rapport vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
Clement Fraud: Interesting that Richard Rapport would choose an Anti-Sicilian line versus Magnus (!???); especially when considering how easily the former champion dismantled Caruana's Anti-Sicilians. I feel certain there must have been a better move than 6.Bxc6?! ; but, other than that, I ...
   Sep-30-23 T Fodor Jr vs Adams, 2018
Clement Fraud: 11... Qb6 (what on earth was he thinking of ?????) Surely 11... Nc6 (!?); with the possibility of: 12.Qxb7 Rab8 13.Qa6 Rb6 14.Qa4 (or 14.Qe2) followed by 14... Rfb8 🤷‍♂️
   Sep-29-23 Ivanchuk vs Lautier, 1992
Clement Fraud: An Ivanchuk tour de force! Incredible maneuvering... in response to some poor moves from Lautier (beginning with 9... f5?). I particularly loved 38.g4!
   Apr-16-23 Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2001 (replies)
Clement Fraud: <Yuridmi> Many thanks indeed.... I am sipping on my Mint Julep now 😌
   Mar-28-23 P Maghsoodloo vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
Clement Fraud: It will probably prove foolish of me to say... but surely the 'whole point' of the Exchange variation is that White keeps open the option of playing f2-f3 🤔 So why was it, therefore, that Maghsoodloo didn't play f2-f3 - the obvious choice - on move number eight?????
