Fantastic French

        This game was played in Budapest in Hungary 3 years ago in an International Master Tourney. I played the exchange variation in the French defense with the aggressive c4 move to open up the position, because most of the french players like to play closed positions. Soon I got a great position and sacrificed a bishop to destroy the king position. I could get a winning position if I sacrifice it a move earlier. He moved his king in the center and defended very well. Later he started to counter-attack and won by a nice move.

When you replay the game, please look the annotations under the board and look also the variations and side lines!

    Props for showing a loss.  It sucks when a strong attack runs out of gas.

    I want to know if the black bishop is better on e7 than on d6. Game explorer gives me only three examples of 5...Bd6 actually being played, but two of them lead to wins for black, and the other transposed into a position that is (statistically) very nice for black.

    What has happened to the annotations? I can't see them??

    I always play the exchange and c4 when I meet the French, but not as well as you.

    i would say after qh7 white's position still seems in danger.
