Mistakes in the French


 After losing my first game, I went on to play someone who wasn't very experienced. I won. However, it wasn't until the third game where I felt my rhythm coming back.


Some improvements are 24. Re1, which forces an immediate trade of rooks, and 40. Rb6 with the point being that 40...Rxa7 loses to 41. Rb8+. At least those are the ones that immediately come to mind. Nice game.
