2017 French championship

The 2017 French championship is over! Etienne Bacrot wins his eighth title. Sophie Milliet her sixth. Eric Prié is the Seniors+ French champion, Richard Goldenberg is the Vétérans French champion. Jean-Pierre Le Roux won the Accession in front of Quentin Loiseau.

In the last round of the French championship there was only one draw, between Yannick Gozzoli and Tigran Gharamian. The two players seemed happy with their result and did not expect to win the tournament, too bad.

Christian Bauer and Sophie Millet leading after 7 rounds of the French chess championships

The French chess championship is on the way in Agen from 19th untill 27th of August 2017. Nearly 1000 players from all over France are participating in nine tournaments including the national championships.

The current French champion Matthieu Cornette has a very strong opposition, with the participation of Etienne Bacrot, seven-time French champion and 39th player in the world. Current French champion among women Sophie Milliet will try to win her 6th title. The last days of the championship are clashing with the festivities of the « Pruneau-show » and chess players will be able to attend this very important cultural event and its concerts. Numerous animations are planned in the city, like the « Night of Chess » during which it will be possible to play against chess champions in the city center. For the first time there is a « French Championship for beginners », open tournament to everyone, young or adult, including unrated players. This is a way to discover chess and competition for the kids from Agen and elsewhere, for accompanying persons who will be initiated during the summer or during the championship.

The French chess championship is organized by the Agen chess club and the French Chess Federation (FFE), with the support of the city of Agen. This is the biggest tournament of the year organized by the FFE. About 3,000 people will make the trip, taking into account families and accompanying persons.
