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.

   Jul-31-18 Daniel Freeman (replies)

   May-31-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
sycophante: Take two: "Squeeze the Levon" !
   May-26-18 S Rosenthal vs Steinitz, 1873 (replies)
sycophante: Never been a GOTD yet? Such a famous game... I propose "Early Synod"
   Mar-20-18 Navara vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
sycophante: Not sure what he was threatening with 27...Qf6, for Navara replying Ke1, exposing his King to a check on h4.
   Mar-06-18 Lombardy vs Reshevsky, 1956 (replies)
sycophante: Just came across this tactical shot on chesstempo. Found it in 9 minutes! It must be very hard to find OTB.
   Oct-31-17 Mamedyarov vs D Svetushkin, 2017
sycophante: 15.e4 in regards of 15...dxe4? 16.Ndxb5! with double threats : Rxd8 or Nc7 Maybe Black overlooked 22.Nxb5 when he played 20.Ne4? 25.e6! is such a little gem. Everything else is superb too. So much fun. An other game from Grandmaster Mamedyarov to enjoy watching over and over ...
   Apr-21-17 L Van Vliet vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1907 (replies)
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 (replies)
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.
