Poison Pawn Unfinished

Sep 8, 2014, 6:55 PM |

This game followed the book line for the poisoned pawn variation of the French defense until the 10th move, which I suspect is just where the computer analysis cuts off. The first move out of the most common responses was white's h4 on move 12, which is a rare but vary dangerous response. The poison pawn variation giving white a passed h pawn while black has neither g nor h pawns!

My opponent was playing very well. I though I was beginning to get the upper hand on move 15. Unfortunately my opponents blundered the queen on move 18, so the game ended without being played out.
