May-27-14  mbvklc: A game worthy of recommendation: S Williams vs C Marcelin, 2014
May-28-14  waustad: This is probably why the French didn't send a women's team to the Mitropa Cup and their men's team has 3 IMs and one FM.

  perfidious: One would think a French side consisting of Vachier, Fressinet, Edouard and Bauer (not to mention Bacrot) would have given a good account of themselves in the Cup.

The French team of 4 2700s will get their chance at the <TROMSK OLYMPIAD>, if it takes place. :-)

  offramp: So. They are all in Saint Quentin. It's about time.

Throw away <la clef>, boyos!

May-29-14  waustad: Sadly for the Mitropa Cup there is also a major team event in France and also a big tournament in Hungary. The French could have gotten a team on the women's side with players like Julie Fischer, but somebody has to pay the bills, assuming that playing is what she wants to do right now. Taking the best French team against the best Austrian team on the men's side would look too much like Austerlitz, but the Austrians won by 3:.
May-31-14  fisayo123: Nice to see Vachier-Lagrave set his stall in the top 10.

Such a wonderfully gifted player who plays beautiful attacking chess deserves the recognition.
