Round 3 of the French championship was interesting for two successful games: Laurent Fressinet managed to overtake Vlad Tkachiev and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave won his second game in a row, this time against Maxime Lagarde. Now Lagrave is a sole leader with 2.5 points out of 3.
Crosstable, timetable, results, all the games and other information related to the tournament

Vachier-Lagrave performed quite a talented game.

Maxime VACHIER-LAGRAVE – Maxime LAGARDE
French championship, round 3

English opening
1.c4 Nf6 2.Nc3 e6 3.e4 c5 4.Nf3 Nc6 5.Be2 e5 6.d3 h6 This move wasn’t played before. Normal development is like this - 7...d6 or 7...g6.
7.0-0 g6

Black has lost a tempo and are lagging behind in development. Vachier-Lagrave decides to use that by all means.
8.b4!? Nxb4 9.Nxe5 d6

10.a3!? dxe5 11.axb4 cxb4 12.Nd5 Nxd5 13.cxd5 Qb6 

14.d4! Third smart decision in a row .
14...exd4 15.Bf4 Bc5 16.e5 Bf5 Perhaps it was far more successful to stick to material: 16...0-0 17.Bxh6 Re8 (the rook controls the "е" file) 18.Bf4 Bf5. The following sequence is possible: 19.Bc4 d3 20.Bxd3 Bd4 21.Bxf5! Bxa1 22.Qxa1 gxf5 23.d6. White has at least a satisfactory compensation for the quality.
17.Bc4 g5 18.Bg3

18...h5? It was indeed necessary to castle here. However, after 18...0-0 19.d6! it was necessary to have nerves of steel to defend the position with only moves.
19.e6! Black is in great trouble here.
19... fxe6 20.dxe6 Ke7 20...Rh6 was more effective for defense.
21.Qf3 Raf8 22.Qd5 Qc6 23.Qe5

23...h4? Time to give up? But it’s really hard to play for black here…
24.Bd5 Qb5 25.Qc7+ Kf6 26.Be5+ Kg6 27.Bxh8 1-0
