  cro777: French Top 12 Chess 2017 (women)

The 12 best teams in France are split into two round robin groups. The top two teams from each group qualify for the finals in June.

Fiona is playing in group B for the Vandoeuvre chess team.

(The Vandoeuvre chess team headed by IM WGM Anastasia Savina and WIM Fiona Steil-Antoni)

Sep-28-17  Mudphudder: I like her commentary. She's a much more effective commentator than someone like Jen Shahade who always seems like she's talking about random off-topic things.
