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!
