French Championship

The French Championship takes place in Agen, France, from 13-21 August. Over 800 participants compete in eight different tournaments, which for the first time consist of 9 rounds over 9 days (not 11 rounds in 12 days as before). The national titles are awarded in two 10-player round-robins. Reigning Champion Christian Bauer is third seed, behind Laurent Fressinet and Edouard Romain. In case of a tie for first place, play-offs will be played at 17:00. The time control is 90 minutes for 40 moves then 30 minutes to the end of the game, with a 30-second increment from move 1.
