Frenchman wins Sinquefield Cup!
Vachier LaGrave edges out competition
Congrats to France’s top GM, 26 year old Vachier LaGrave, for achieving his career’s best result (so far!) at the St. Louis Sinquefield Cup. Scoring 6 points from 9 games (three wins, zero losses), he beat out his closest competition (Carlsen and Anand) by a mere half point. He pocketed a cool $75,000 for his efforts.
