France’s Top_12 (2018)
Brilliant finish in round 1
France’s grand finale to its 2018 team championship is taking place in Brest between May 26 and June 5. Known as ‘Top12‘, this is one of the strongest team championships in the world, bringing together 12 super-strong teams of 8 boards each. It is mandatory that atleast one of the boards have a female participant.
I was particularly impressed with the finish to the game between Natacha Benmesbah (2264) and Mathilde Choisy (2158) in today’s first round:
Benmesbah,N – Choisy,M Brest 26.5.2018 Rd.1

The 29 year old Natacha won the WIM title in 2011 and has been consistently one of the top scoring females in France. Natacha has collected an impressive list of titles and national championships.
