GenCon Paris : Open de France 2007

The Open de France took place during the Gencon Paris. 3 boards were organised and 14 players participated to this tournament. Some famous French players were here like Cyrille Sevin, Vincent Carry, William Attia... It was a good place to find new players and I hope to see them again.
On Sunday, we had the surprise to see David Attias, who played his last tournament in 1994. And I can say that diplomacy is like bicycle, you never forget it!
