Dec-25-09  mysql: How did a super-GM like Vachier-Lagrave get into a tournament with these players?

Here's another one as pointed-out by <tamar>:

M Vachier-Lagrave vs Y Benmessaoud, 2004

Dec-25-09  Billy Vaughan: He was, like, 13. And it wasn't till 2005 he got his GM title. You gotta start out playing patzers and move up..

If that's the case, then there must be something wrong with the PGN because it shows that Vachier-Lagrave was rated 2637 when this was played.

Dec-25-09  Billy Vaughan: FIDE has him just under 2500 by the end of 2004:

His opponent here is kinda weak for even a 2400 IM to play, but mismatches like that happen in open tournaments.

Dec-16-16  razetime: Dang, that must have been painful to encounter, being a close-to 2500 player.
