Aug-19-10  Illogic: Fressinet has been the sole winner the last two rounds. He's in the driver's seat though he does still have to play Bacrot.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Half these guys appear to be Russians. Maybe Boris Spassky could throw his hat in the ring? He lives in Paris.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: Edouard won a sharp miniature against Tkachiev, so has caught Fressinet.

11th round pairings



Premium Chessgames Member
  Marmot PFL: Every player has at least 50% draws, most more (Dorfman 100%). Is this typical of French chess?
Aug-19-10  SamAtoms1980: Er.... cinquième? :-)
Aug-19-10  Dredge Rivers: Actually, this is the Freedom Championship! :)
Aug-19-10  ganstaman: The French Defense is currently +2 -2 =2 in this championship if I'm counting correctly. I was hoping for somewhat better.
Aug-20-10  paavoh: @ganstaman: 50% score for any defence is pretty good, on average White wins 55%.
Aug-20-10  Valmy: <HeMateMe>, it is not 50% from Russian origine, it's only 33% (4 on 12).
Aug-20-10  Valmy: About BACROT-FRESSINET round 11, BACROT is +6 -0 = 3 vs FRESSINET. Lets see...
Aug-20-10  alexrawlings: How come Maxime Vachier-Lagrave isn't playing?
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: <Every player has at least 50% draws, most more (Dorfman 100%).> And Dorfman's draws are mostly quick:

21 13 30 13 12 16 30 32 43 17

Aug-21-10  Atking: The "Dortman". "The man who can sleep during a game." He wakes up "Draw?".
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: He wakes up -<the Critical Moment>- he also wrote a book about it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: The French championship 9-21 August 2010, ranking crosstable after 11 rounds:,

after which Edouard lost the rapid playout today 0.5-1.5 vs the new champion, GM Laurent Fressinet.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: And with Fressinet's wife winning the women's section, there is no doubt who is France's strongest chess couple.
