a nice win in the french with 2.f4

Hi everyone!

Gosh, I think it's been a year since I last chess-blogged. Apologises for that.

Some updates: I've recently turn a corner and am back to 1600 ELO thereabouts on playchess.com with 15m+0s time control. The reason for this improvement I feel is merely a correction in bad mental habits: always thinking of my opponents best move and being patient. I think I sometimes try to force the win too much, and overlook good patient waiting moves.


In any case, I hope you enjoy the following chess game: It's a french defence with 2.f4
