Chess with Sam Collins

Maxim Rodshtein vs Bassem Amin, French Club Championship 2019, Brest, France

23rd June, 2019

French Club Championship 2019, Brest, France

Defending champions Bischwiller retained their French Club Championship title. Their top player, Israeli GM Maxim Rodshtein, was especially impressive, scoring 8/11 against strong opposition including Egypt’s Bassem Amin, one of my favourite players and the first African GM to achieve a 2700 rating.
