|Aug-07-05|| ||TruthHurts: Congratulations to Cyprus for their incredible performance, they are last out of 40 at all the boards, they have the gold medal of the worst performance for board 1 until 5.|
|Aug-07-05|| ||sitzkrieg: Poor Cyprus. I hope they dont hand out medals on basis of percentages that wouldnt make sense if for example someone just played once or twice..
Also; are France and Greece tied or ended France higher cause of TPR? If i am correct they both have the same amount of match and board points.|
|Aug-07-05|| ||TruthHurts: France is third alone because of a higher BH, 184 for france 164.5 for Greece (wich is the board total amount of faced teams during the tourney), Greece has a far smaller BH because they faced lower teams only coming threw during the last rounds, therefore I would say that this is fair that Greece finally doesn't get over the podium...|
|Aug-07-05|| ||sitzkrieg: Ok thanks sounds fair indeed|
|Aug-07-05|| ||shortsight: < ... medals on basis of percentages that wouldnt make sense if for example someone just played once or twice ... > Well, for most of the team championships, that's the way to determine best board players. But, they do take into account of this, where players are valid for the board prizes if only they had played a number of minimum games in the championship, says, at least 5 games.|

Fressinet vs Rublevsky, 2006
|Oct-10-08|| ||Petrosianic: <ConLaMismaMano> <Somebody knows why Fressinet didn't participate at the World Championship in Libya?>|
He was too high rated for that tournament.
|Jul-31-10|| ||braimondi: Congrats to Fressinet to join the 2700+ group|
|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:|

|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 :)
