Clement Fraud
Member since Nov-24-16 · Last seen Jul-23-21
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.

   Jun-28-21 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018
Clement Fraud: AlphaZero has presented me with a brand new concept for Black, regarding how to play the Tarrasch Defense: I would not have considered moving the King Bishop twice - Bf8-e7-b4 - before my development was completed.
   Jun-15-21 Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2021 (replies)
Clement Fraud: Great game by Shakh indeed! I am no grandmaster, but this moderate amateur would certainly have preferred 6.a4 : from where I sit, the Knight on d4 is worth more than the b5 Bishop.
   May-09-21 Giri vs Kramnik, 2016
Clement Fraud: This opening should, with precise play, be very advantageous for White. In the game Topalov vs Kramnik, 2017 White fares better (following 8.Rc1), but even here he doesn't achieve as much as he might.
   Apr-21-21 Caruana vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2021
Clement Fraud: I reckon that if White could lose his obsession with the Bishop pair, he could achieve a fine and lasting advantage in this line (avoiding the Poisoned Pawn variations altogether): 6.Bg5 e6 7.Qd2! h6 8.Bxf6 Qxf6 9.O-O-O! In this position, I fail to see how White cannot be ...
   Apr-16-21 Vachier-Lagrave vs Caruana, 2020
Clement Fraud: After 14... Bb7, White appears to have too much unconsolidated space within his center (and has to attack in order to defend) ; my conclusion is that 11.h3 is an unaffordable luxury. I strongly believe that 11.Be3 should be considered.
   Mar-31-21 Anand vs Topalov, 2010
Clement Fraud: This was the first game in the match where Topalov achieved advantage with the black pieces.
   Feb-17-21 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1990 (replies)
Clement Fraud: I have been reading through some of the Kibitz remarks in regard of Karpov's 29th move: the consensus of opinion seems to be that Karpov missed the best move for himself at this point, and won the game in a less impressive manner "playing it safe". According to a book - an ...
   Feb-16-21 Hartston vs Miles, 1973 (replies)
Clement Fraud: <MissScarlett> Oh course he does - very well spotted! 12.Nxf7! wins for White (!!) You have provided the entire solution to my question! It's little wonder I had such a dreadful season before the lock-downs started. Many thanks to you MissScarlett
   Feb-13-21 Timoshenko vs M Mrva, 1994
Clement Fraud: <Stonehenge> Many thanks
   Feb-13-21 Timman vs Karpov, 1988 (replies)
Clement Fraud: Just curious... might anyone be able to tell me which it is of White's moves that gives rise to the Kasparov Attack (please)?
