Yesterday my opponent played the French defense. I played the exchange variation 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 a bishop to destroy the king position. He moved his king in the center and defended very well. Later he started to counter-attack and won by a nice move.

 

Today I drew a 70-move game which ended with only kings on the board. He got an advantage in the middlegame. Then I created counterplay and saved the position. In the endgame I may have had some winning chances. I will post the game tomorrow. I used 1 minute for today's 5 checkmates. It was a long day :) I'm going to sleep. See you soon!
