|Aug-01-10|| ||hermit druid: Fress is the man ! Future France #1|
|Aug-14-10|| ||Tabanus: Strong 2nd place in San Juan GM (Spain) 24 July - 1 August 2010:|
|Aug-21-10|| ||Tabanus: The French championship was played 9-21 August 2010. Ranking crosstable after 11 rounds:|
after which Fressinet won the rapid playout today 1.5-0.5 vs GM Romain Edouard.
|Oct-25-11|| ||plimko: Fressinet is the top seeded player in Corsica Masters (in Bastia from 22 to 29 october; 'rapid KO' in Ajaccio, 31 oct.)|
On 'Scacchi Internazionali':
|Nov-30-11|| ||wordfunph: "The biggest success my wife (Elmira Skripchenko) had is her participation in the tournament poker in Las Vegas, she won 80 thousand dollars within only 4 days. In principle, you can win
a lot in poker. So, now my wife is the main breadwinner of our family (laughs)!"|
- GM Laurent Fressinet
happy 30th birthday GM Fressinet!
|Mar-24-12|| ||waustad: Welcome back to the 2700 club. I suppose the only real advantage to that over 2695 from the fan's perspective is that your live rating is posted now.|
|Mar-24-12|| ||Penguincw: He jumped more than anyone else in the 2700 club right now (23 places!). McShane is next, jumping 19 places.|
|Mar-30-12|| ||Penguincw: Fressinet won to take the lead at 8/10, ahead of 7 half back. He has black against Dmitry Jakovenko, and a draw insures at least shared first.|
In terms of rating, he is now France #1, and also the only Frenchman in the 2700 club. Congratz!
|Mar-31-12|| ||Penguincw: He stumbled in the end, due to a decisive mistake on move 33. Nevertheless, he still picks up a silver (finishes up with 8/11), over 18 rating points, and a ticket to the World Cup 2013 (I assume).|
|Apr-02-12|| ||twinlark: <Penguincw> He does.|
|Apr-02-12|| ||Penguincw: < twinlark: <Penguincw> He does. >|
Thanks. Although I'm not sure they use a prime number of people qualify. Maybe it's 24, and a grand total of 48 get in.
|Apr-02-12|| ||twinlark: <Penguincw>
According to Chessdom, 23 will qualify: http://www.chessdom.com/dmitry-jako.... 14 are known but it seems they want to be certain of the tiebreak results as they'll have to split the field that scored 7.5.
|Nov-30-12|| ||brankat: Happy Birthday GM Fressinet!|
|Apr-25-13|| ||jessicafischerqueen: Beat <Kramnik> here|
Kramnik vs Fressinet, 2013
|Apr-29-13|| ||Chessinfinite: Laurent was made to behave properly by the World Champion today at Alekhine Memorial. |
Fressinet's brilliance may work against his master Kramnik, not against Anand :!
Maybe Laurent will consider kissing Anand's shoe next time :)
|Aug-12-13|| ||Marmot PFL: Does Fressinet have 2 or 3 syllables?|
|Aug-12-13|| ||Nerwal: <Does Fressinet have 2 or 3 syllables?>|
3. Frey (as in prey) - si - nay
|Aug-12-13|| ||Marmot PFL: Thanks, that's fairly close to what I guessed.|
|Nov-30-13|| ||Penguincw: Happy 32nd birthday to French GM Laurent Fressinet.|

|Jun-19-14|| ||offramp: There is rather a superb sparkling wine with a similar name to his (Freixenet); I would think the names are related.|
|May-15-15|| ||Penguincw: Nice effort by Laurent Fressinet at the EnterCard Scandinavian Masters (2015). He was selected as one of 6 players to compete for a spot at the upcoming Norway Chess Tournament.|
The tournament was divided into 2 parts: classical (games worth double the points) and rapid. Fressinet managed to match Hammer stride-for-stride with 4.5/5 (9 points, their H2H game drawn).
In the rapid games, Hammer won his first game, and beat Fressinet with black in a crucial game. They both won their Round 8 games, while Fressinet won in R9 to pull within a point, but all Round 10 games were drawn.
On the bright side, he gains 8.1 rating points to move into a tie with Nepomniachtchi for 31st on the live ratings. Also, he can cheer for compatriot MVL at the Norway tournament. ;)
|Jul-05-15|| ||Penguincw: < Also, he can cheer for compatriot MVL at the Norway tournament. ;) >|
FWIW: MVL scored 4/9 (+1,-2,=6), tie for 5th.
Laurent Fressinet had a solid performance at the Porticcio Open, scoring 7/9 (+5,-0,=4), against 2380 opposition.
|Nov-30-16|| ||ketchuplover: happy birthday you knucklehead i mean it|
|Aug-28-17|| ||cro777: Cameron Diaz. "I've pretty much behaved like a knucklehead my entire life".|
