Thanks everyone.

as white!? I personally play 2.f4 for no reason, and for some reason it works out pretty well. Ofc, I will play accelerated Panov-Botvinnik attack OTB to give myself an IQP.

The 2.f4 line:

I'd play 3. ...Bf5. I think it must be better. No point wasting a move to loosen black's game.

 

Why ....Qb6? It's horrible.

I guess it puts pressure on d4 and b2.

4...Bg4 seems better than 4...Bf5, IMO.

I'd rather swap the bishop for white's bishop than his knight. I didn't like Qb6 because black isn't seriously threatening d4, unlike in the French Advance. Obviously white was completely lost. g4 would have been better than Kh1. In such positions, white tries to play dc followed by b4.

The 2.f4 line:  1.  e4 c6 2.  f4 d5 3.  e5 c5 actually best here, but Bf5 works too. 4.  Nf3 Bf5 5.  d4 opening prep ends here. ONE possible continutation: 5...  Nc6 6.  c3 Qb6 7.  Bd3 Bxd3 8.  Qxd3 e6 9.  O-O Nh6 10.  h3 Be7 11.  Kh1 Nf5 12.  g4 ?! is probably too weakening, but interesting. 12...  Nh6 13.  Nbd2 O-O-O 14.  b4 !?

 

umm, 12. ... Ng3    - Maybe there is a misprint or typographical error?

He just missed it. It was a bad game.

No, I was blitzing for both sides. What I wrote was just a "sample variation" and not one of my games, because I can't even stand to look at the number of missed wins for both sides... Just looking for <2 seconds means that I don't make the best moves for both sides.
