This game kind of marks another flavor of chess games that I'd like to analyze here -- more positional (less aggressive on the tactics side) games that rely on good positional principles and good endgame planning. This game looked pretty closely even, in my opinion, until I messed up at some points in the endgame and got my opponent to a more favorable position where he could eventually win material. Feel free to let me know your thoughts there.

 

Also...this is the first time I've seen someone play Bc5 right after Nc6 in the Advance Variation of the French...I don't seem to see anything outright good or bad, but if anyone has any type of commentary/strengths + weaknesses of that line, I'd love to hear your thoughts as well :)

 

Thanks again readers, and enjoy the analysis!
