Tactics for the slightly insane Own games

nice game henk! good for you that your opponent didn't listen to me saying Never play the Dutch!

After a while away from chess, I was afraid I'd have to relearn everything. Fortunately, certain things remained apparently stored in my memory. Proof is that easy-going exchange French initiative againt a 1970-rated player.
Arguably a game with some mistakes on both sides but a nice illustration of the ideas in the exchange French for the attacking player...

nice game! (btw, it takes a bit longer than a couple of months to forget the ins and outs of chess ........)

Spirit of the Morra....
Here a little 10 min game with very lively rooks wreaking havoc on open files. My opponent did his best to exchange queens. After dancing around a bit, I granted him his wish. Queens are so overrated...
