Anatoly Karpov is still a dangerous player at faster time controls, and won the 2014 edition of the annual tournament at Cap d'Agde. He again made it to the final this year, against Laurent Fressinet, and had excellent chances to win. They drew a pair of rapid games, and Karpov was winning in both of the blitz games. Alas for the 12th world champion, he went on to lose both of them due to blunders when down to his waning seconds. A fine achievement for the older player all the same, and for Fressinet as well.
