    This one was a challenging OTB game for me against a 1900 player but I did pretty well considering my low rating.

Better may be to play Qc2 here and prevent Bf5 } 6.e3 ( 6.Qc2 ) 6...c6 ( 6...Bf5 7.Bd3 { Not sure that I like this position I feel black has equalised. } 7...Bxd3 ( 7...Qd7 8.f3 ) 8.Qxd3 ) 7.Qc2 O-O { In this position I started to consider which of the two plans I wanted to utilize: f3, Bd3, Ne2-g3 for the plan of central advance (which is what I usually try), or try my hand at a minority attack which I understand as Rb1, b4-b5 to attack the c6 pawn and create a weakness I can hone in on, a downside is that sometimes your king will lose defenders to the queenside leaving him vulnerable. } 8.Nf3 Bg4 9.Be2 { I did not consider moving the knight but maybe I should have, Ne5-Nd3 ideas and Nd2 and probably switch to a central advance with f3 and e4 } ( 9.Rb1 Bxf3 10.gxf3 { I considered this and tried to understad the value of the opn g file and control of the e file against the king suck in the center and "ruined" pawn structure.

Also playing these faster games allows me to sample ideas quickly (here the idea was the minority attack).
