MVL is GM Finegold's MVP! According to our author, he has faith in his ideas and loves to attack. In the opening game, the French number one mimics Ben's other favorite player, Paul Morphy, by bringing all of the reserves in before striking the decisive blow. In game two, he summarily busts a top-10 player's opening preparation. Don't try to out-prepare this top theoretician, or you'll be in Lagrave danger!
