Member since Apr-16-07 · Last seen Dec-27-21
I live in Paris, born in 1966. I've been playing chess more or less regularly since the age of 17. My rating is in the 1900-2000 range FIDE.

tarek1: <chessdgc2> I'd rather save the rook on a5
   Oct-23-12 Nakamura vs Y Hou, 2012 (replies)
tarek1: Perhaps d5 is playable here. for example 14...d5 15.Nf6+ Bxf6 16.gxf6 Be6 followed by long castle, and black's position isn't so bad.
   Oct-12-12 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2012 (replies)
tarek1: Finally Carlsen found some good use for his bishop : by turning it into a pawn.
   Oct-09-12 Caruana vs Karjakin, 2012 (replies)
tarek1: Well, answering my own question googling "interview fabiano caruana" yielded this extract : <Q: For Italian, you speak good English. Fabiano Caruana: Nothing special. I was born and grew up in the USA. But at some point it became clear that for a professional chess player it is ...
   Oct-03-12 Jesse Kraai (replies)
tarek1: <Poisonpawns> I am also a subscriber. It looks like he changed his mind on the matter because in some later videos he announced that the Tarrasch made him abandon the French... Actually now it seems that he abandoned chess because he didn't play a rated game ...
   Oct-01-12 Grischuk vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
tarek1: <dakgootje> I was referring to 2 videos published on the site (very interesting site but requires registration and payment. Worth the price though). One of the videos was from IM Paschall commenting on one of his game : White: Paschall, W. (2354) ...
   Sep-29-12 Aronian vs Caruana, 2012 (replies)
tarek1: And of course Kg7 Rf5 Kg6, repeating.
   Sep-27-12 Hracek vs A Kveinys, 1992 (replies)
tarek1: This one looks quite simple to me : <39...Qxh3+!!> Beautiful queen sacrifice, White has to accept or lose the rook without compensation. <40.Kxh3 hxg3+> Here giving the counter-sacrifice <41.Qxh6 Kxh6> is probably the best white has but results in a lost endgame
   Sep-16-12 L Stumpers vs Euwe, 1946 (replies)
tarek1: After checking with Houdini, my move Ng5 doesn't work due to <29.Nac2>. So <26...Nd4> that I had analysed for a long time is the move. But it only wins a pawn.
   Sep-15-12 P Hesse vs Smejkal, 1977 (replies)
tarek1: <scormus> Most of us can't resist to play a tactical move even when it's not really necessary. <37.Rf8> is indeed better. The interesting fact is that Houdini rates even <37.Bxf6> even higher than <37.Rd6> because W reaches the same position I posted in my 1st
