@jeffreyd600: how would you have won? I only see draws or advantage for white.
I'll be on this evening to post a few games. Things got busy with work!
I was quite surprised when white resigned this match, I thought it was fairly even. Engine says black does have a lead, though, albeit a slim one.
No zugzwang, but black just picks up all the pawns from c2-a2, and have a winning advantage I think
honestly in that one, White played very poorly and not as agressively as he should have. it is the kings gambit and he is supposed to fight for the advantage.
