Mar-30-12  ColdSong: Amazing quick collapse for the strong armenian GM and no less amazing achievement so far for GM Fressinet. One may notice that the three french mousquetaires, Bacrot, Vachier and Fressinet, don't have a single defeat so far, after thirty games.
Mar-30-12  haydn20: When I played thru this game I thought that 17. ...dxc4 couldn't be right, since Black's set-up is based on maintaining central tension. Sure enough, Fritz 12 didn't like it either. Turns out black's LSB is hemmed in until it's too late. White's attack nets a Knight and then the game. BTW Opening Ex has this as a Nimzo not a QID.

  Penguincw: Devastating win by Laurent Fressinet, so late in the tournament. A draw insures at least shared first.

GM Csaba in a commentary writes that 17...dxc4 'is an attempt to complicate matters but it still just improves White's position.' Then proceeds to provide very instructive variations.
