Master Trek 25 May Round 3
In the third round I played the French Exchange from the white side. Most French players don't like it and play for a fight. If they do they usually play a variation I am quite happy to play against because I get lots of play against their queenside castle. Even though I won this game, I still missed a lot of good moves for white. I used like 2 minutes for the first 10 moves and only another 20 for the remaining 20 moves. I was so not into extended long thinks at this tourney.
