(born Jan-22-1983, 40 years old) France
[what is this?]

Born in Lille, France. Grandmaster (1997).


Étienne Bacrot gained his FM title when he was 10, then the youngest to ever do so. He then proceeded to win his IM title when he was 12 and the GM title at 14 years and 2 months, which at the time made him the youngest Grandmaster ever. Twice a youth world champion, he defeated former World Champion Vasily Smyslov 5-1 in a match in Albert in 1996, won the French Championship a record seven times, and still is a contender for the world title. While Bacrot was French number one for many years and a consistent 2700+ rated GM including having been a world top-10 player in 2005, he has not fulfilled the explosive potential he displayed in the 1990s and the first half of the 2000s.


<Youth>: Bacrot was both U10 European and U10 World Champion in 1993, and both U12 European and U12 World Champion in 1995.

<National and Continental>: Bacrot won the French Championship five consecutive times from 1999 to 2003, then again in the French Championship (2008), and he shared the first place and first prize at the French Championship (2012) with Christian Bauer, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave and Romain Edouard, all four players being declared co-champions by the French Federation. (1) Other good results were 3rd place in the French Championship (2010), runner up in the French Championship (2014) and 3rd in the French Championship (2015).

Bacrot competed in the 2003 European Championship, scoring 8/13, placed =5th European Union Championship (2008) with 7/10 and scored 7.5/11 at the 13th European Individual Championship (2012), sufficient to qualify him for participation in the 2013 World Cup.

<World>: Bacrot’s first tilt at the World Championship was at the FIDE World Championship Knockout Tournament (2000). Qualifying because his rating as a junior was over 2600, he eliminated Mikhail Rytshagov in the first round tiebreaker and then fell to Peter Svidler in the second round tiebreaker. Bacrot’s next attempt at the World Championship came 3 years later at Tripoli in Libya, where he beat Pascal Charbonneau and Darmen Sadvakasov before losing to Teimour Radjabov in the 3rd round tiebreaker. The following year, Bacrot placed 3rd in the 2005 World Cup, after defeating Stanley Chumfwa, Robert Kempinski, Emil Davidovich Sutovsky, Joel Lautier, Sergei Vladimirovich Rublevsky, Levon Aronian and Alexander Grischuk to qualify for the 2007 Candidates matches to determine the final make up of the World Championship Tournament (2007). He was overwhelmed in the Candidates Match: Bacrot - Kamsky (2007) to lose by 3.5-0.5.

He tried again in the World Chess Cup (2007), defeating Darwin Laylo and Michael Roiz in the first couple of rounds, only to lose to Sergey Karjakin in the 3rd round. He participated in the 2008-09 Grand Prix series without making it to the leader board, and so participated in World Cup (2009) to rekindle his World Championship ambitions. There he defeated Friso Nijboer, Krishnan Sasikiran and Wang Yue, but bowed out in the 4th round to finalist and former FIDE World Champion Ruslan Ponomariov. In the World Cup (2011), Bacrot fared similarly: defeating Ray Robson and Anton Filippov in the early rounds, he again lost in round 3, this time to Radjabov. Bacrot’s next chance came in the World Cup (2013), to which he qualified by reason of his result in the 2012 European Championship (see above). In the first round he beat Norwegian GM Simen Agdestein progressing to the second round where he lost to 2013 European champion, the Ukrainian GM Alexander Moiseenko.

Standard Tournaments:

Bacrot became the youngest International Master in the world, at the age of 12, at Enghien-les-Bains 1995. He gained his his 3rd GM norm by winning the category 10 Enghien-les-Bains tournament in 1997 ahead of Viktor Korchnoi. He won the category 9 Bermuda in 1999 and placed =3rd at the category 17 Enghien-les-Bains 2001 behind Vladimir Eduardovich Akopian and Lautier. He also won the first edition of the Lausanne young masters knockout tournament in May 1999, beating Ruslan Ponomariov in the final after placing last in his preliminary pool rounds to determine the pairings. He did not compete in the Lausanne event in 2000 but was runner up in 2001, losing in the final to Lazaro Bruzon Batista and in 2003, losing in the final to Luke McShane. He placed =3rd in the category 18 NAO Masters in Cannes in April 2002, behind Veselin Topalov and Boris Gelfand, and =2nd at Biel International Chess Festival (2003) behind Alexander Morozevich. He came first 1st at the 10th Torneo Verona A in Italy with 6/7 in 2004.

In 2005, he scored 6/9, half point behind the 5 co-leaders. At the Aeroflot Open (2005), Bacrot placed =1st in the category 18 6th Poikovsky Karpov Tournament (2005) taking first place and first prize on tiebreak ahead of co-leader Viktor Antonovich Bologan, and equal second at the category 19 Dortmund Sparkassen (2005), half a point behind the surprise winner, 19-year old German prodigy Arkadij Naiditsch. In 2006, he was less successful, recording minus scores in the Corus (2006), Morelia-Linares (2006) and MTel Masters (2006) super tournaments, consequently falling back to 18th place in the world rankings at the end of the year. In 2009, he won the powerful Aeroflot Open (2009) and subsequently placed 2nd at the category 15 Montreal International Chess Tournament (2009), half a point behind Naiditsch; =2nd at category 15 InventiChess event in Antwerp in Belgium and was =1st in a 9-way tie for first at Gibraltar (2010).

2010 saw Bacrot place 3rd at the category 21 Nanjing Pearl Spring Tournament (2010) behind Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand, and win the 2010 Geneva Open. In Jan 2011, he was =1st (3rd on tiebreak) at Basel Chess Festival. Later that year in October 2011, Bacrot won the 12th Karpov International (2011) on count back from Sergey Karjakin, both scoring 5.5/9 (+2 =7). In February 2012, Bacrot came second, scoring 6.5/8 plus a forfeit, at the 26th International Games Festival in Cannes, scored 7/9 in the International Neckar Open 2012, which was followed by a poor result in the Grandmaster Tournament at the Biel Chess Festival (2012). He finished 2012 by winning the International Open in Geneva between Christmas and New Year. His first result in 2013 was winning the Baden Baden Open outright with a score of 7/9. This was followed by his outright first in the 2nd d'Ajaccio Open 2013 in France in April 2013, where he scored 8.5/9. He replaced Radjabov on a one-off basis in the FIDE Grand Prix Thessaloniki (2013), but scored only 4/11 to earn only 25 points for the Grand Prix series 2012-13. He was more successful at Biel (2013), where he tied for 1st with three other players, scoring 14 points using the 3-1-0 "football" scoring system - had the "normal" scoring system been used, he would have won by half a point, however a four-way tiebreaker playoff placed him =3rd. Bacrot also performed well at the FIDE Grand Prix Paris (2013), where he again participated as a replacement, and placed =3rd, half a point behind the joint leaders. In April 2014, he participated in the inaugural Gashimov Memorial (Group B) (2014), the 2nd tier of a tournament to commemorate the late Azeri grandmaster, and scored 5/9 to place =3rd in the category 17 event. He was also =3rd at the category 19 15th Poikovsky Karpov Tournament (2014) in May 2014. He again placed =3rd in April 2015 at the International Neckar Open and then came =4th at the Nakhchivan Open a few weeks later.

<Olympiad>: Bacrot represented France in six Olympiads, including 1996, 1998, Bled Olympiad (2002), 37th Chess Olympiad (2006), Olympiad (2008) and Chess Olympiad (2014). In the 2014 Olympiad he scored 7/10, narrowly missing an individual medal for his board. He gained his first GM norm at Yerevan 1996 (2).

  offramp: «Vous ne pouvez jamais prévoir quelle sera l’issue non seulement d’une partie, mais du match entier. Nos espoirs étaient bien sûr très élevés. Nous avions prévu que l’équipe marque plus de points, mais certaines fois, le résultat a été affecté par quelques détails.»

Jun-25-17  ChessHigherCat: <offramp: Another chess lookalike. Bacrot is the double of Eraserhead (Tête de Gomme)>

I won a free "Eraserhead" T-shirt in a look-alike contest before the screening! That's one of my favorite David Lynch moves, with the father's view of family life. Now Bacrot's starting to look more like Colin Firth, although in most of photos he looks like he's pissed-off that the photographer came sneaking up on him.

I hope Bacrot (and French chess in general) will step out of the "back row" with this one. He probably accepted a hefty salary as the coach of Azerbaijan since it's an oil-producing country but it may have distracted him from competition a while. I think it's a load of crap that a 2700 player can't hope to beat a 2800 player, after all the 2800 players were all lowly 2700 players themselves at some point. Ratings are overrated.

Aug-28-17  cro777: Etienne Bacrot won his eighth title of champion of France by beating Laurent Fressinet in a playoff. He was lost in an Armageddon game but won on time.

Laurent Fressinet - Etienne Bacrot (French Championship 2017, tiebreak-5)

Position after 73...Ke5

click for larger view

Here, in a clearly won position White lost on time!

Laurent Fressinet who won the toss surprisingly chose to take the white pieces.

Aug-28-17  Petrosianic: <Here, in a clearly won position White lost on time!>

Why should that be surprising enough to warrant an exclamation mark? It was a Blitz game, and one in which White got a minute less time, to boot.

Besides, even if White captured the pawn on h5 and claimed a draw (assuming the rules would have let him claim one), he'd still lose the title, since Black had Draw Odds. So really nothing out of the ordinary happened at all. This isn't exactly a photo finish. It must have been known <long> before the game ended that White wasn't going to win it, meaning Black gets the title.

Aug-29-17  cro777: <It was a Blitz game, and one in which White got a minute less time, to boot.>

In an Armageddon game White is given a minute more time (6 minutes against 5 minutes).

  WannaBe: Armageddon, white have more time, but <HAVE TO WIN>.

Black have less time, but only need to <NOT LOSE>. (Draw OK...)

I think most GMs in this case will choose black... Could be wrong.

Aug-29-17  cro777: <WannaBe> You are right. Fressinet surprisingly chose white pieces. Evidently he preferred to have more time. It is an irony that he lost on time.
Sep-01-17  cro777: The French Chess Championship 2017, a 10-player round-robin tournament, took place from 19-27 August 2017 in Agen, France.

The winners on the podium:

1 Etienne BACROT
4 Yannick GOZZOLI

Jan-22-18  diagonal: Thanks for your up-date, <cro777>.

Étienne Bacrot is the record Champion of France, <winning the National French Championship eight times so far>: 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 in a row, 2008, 2012 (shared) and 2017.

A former chess child prodigy, Bacrot <became a Grandmaster in March 1997 at the age of 14 years and 2 months>, making him the youngest person to that date to have held the GM title (later in December, Ruslan Ponomariov took his record), <when winning on tie-break the 2nd Enghien-les-Bains invitation tournament> alongside Viktor Korchnoi, ahead of Dorfman, Spraggett, etc.

Still, as it is mentioned in the cg. bio, he somehow has not fully fulfilled his early promises. His peak ranking was sole <no.9 of the world> in the consecutive FIDE Elo lists of January (, April, July, and October 2005. He had a higher nominal rating in 2013, but out of the top ten.

I wanted to write you to contact for the transcript, but I'm unable to locate this film in their online catalogue at all (or whoever is the copyright holder these days).

A more 'nerdy' way is doing something like this

Put the generated text file in a translator of your choice. But as it is already a dubbed video (so far no location of a more suited version) honestly the result is not 'ideal'. Well I could at least make some sense with a German to English test baloon. Bonne chance.
