Marseille Migraines Lay Waste to Cannes Blockbusters
In a battle between the two French PRO Chess League teams, the Marseille Migraines battered the Cannes Blockbusters 10-6 in one-sided affair. Boards one, two, and three for Marseille were nearly unstoppable, scoring 3.5/4, 3/4, and 3.5/4, respectively. GM Etienne Bacrot led his team with precise, energetic play. His third round win against GM Robert Fontaine was especially convincing.
