  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!

  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).

  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.

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.

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 :)

  offramp: There is rather a superb sparkling wine with a similar name to his (Freixenet); I would think the names are related.
