There wasn't any slow chess league this week as my opponent had a family emergency to sort out.

Then again, there's always rapid chess! =p 

Today I played a really good french exchange as Black. It really plays to stay persistent to one's opening choices to get into positions which you are familiar with. That way, it is much easier to find the best move. Such was the case in the following game.

Btw, I started to discover the 'explorer' function on chess.com. It's pretty fun. You get to see the percentage of wins/losses from any given position that you have played in the past. Seems like I do well against the french exchange, losing less then half my games (which is great as Black!)
