Perhaps one of the most ebullient players has become a hit on the online chess scene. Aurélie Dacalor has joined the team that produced the “Chess & Strategy” videos. The Women’s FIDE Master can also be seen promoting popular book titles in “Au Pays des Livres” series. The videos are all short and are well-done with an eclectic array of accompanying music.
Dacalor is featured in the videos primarily giving “play to mate” problems. She does it with such enthusiasm and joy that it is infectious. Dacalor represented France at the junior level and has played in several French women’s championships. She remains enthusiastic about the sport of chess. The chess beauty also has ancestry in the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe and certainly puts a good face on chess.
