Alex Club Championship Game 02/11/18 French Defence Classical Steinitz Variation

My club championship game against Paul Sneesby last night (02/11/2018). I played black and faced 1. d4. After e6, which surprises some white d4 players, he played e4 and we had a french – which i am happy playing.

I missed a tactic on move 11. Instead of Qb4, I should play Ndxe5, and if fxe, then Qh5+ double attacking the Knight on d4, therefore winning a pawn.

Comments/ideas/mistakes etc would be good.

  1. Thank you, Alex. Interesting game. Too bad you missed a tactic. Will for sure analyse this one and give you my feedback later this week! Greetings from Edinburgh
