The game of this month contains an idea all French Defense players should be familiar with: the exchange sacrifice on f3. In general, if White's pawn structure gets damaged and the e5 pawn is captured, Black get adequate compensation. Anyway, as always in chess, the final assessment depends on the particular position.
