The German Bundesliga has the biggest reputation, but the French Top 12 club championship also has its share of big name players. Anish Giri's Bischwiller easily took first ahead of Clichy, with Wesley So on top board. So had to endure a rating hiccup in the last round when he fell at the hands of veteran Ukrainian grandmaster Sergey Fedorchuk. Fedorchuk's provocative opening play drew an appropriately aggressive response, but while attempting to prosecute his advantage, So surprisingly saw his position completely collapse.
