Weak field. This used to be a great and strong tournament before but the past years had seen his status as elite tourney plummeted to its lowest level the reason why top GM's shy away from this relatively weak tournament. GM Fressinet kind of just use this garbage tournament collect elo points and cash prize. His opponents were past their prime and old players, weak this tourney is more of category 2 tournament. Congrats anyway for winning
