Today's game displays an obscure variation of the French Defense, and though white makes a positional mistake (the unnecessary capture with Bxg6) -- as Dzindzi explains, black's sins were much worse! Watch as white establishes a strong outpost on d6, continues to bring in the major pieces along the c and d files, and finishes the game off in style (though it couldn't have been better).
