Lateral Defence

Here is a very interesting game against a very strong 190  player from my the Worthing Chess Championship. I hadn’t played or even met Grant before and I can say he is a very pleasant chap (who bought me a pint!).

This was a very interesting game and the mighty French withstood the initial attack. Unfortunately I overlooked a little tactic which didn’t bode well. One theme that I found interesting was the lateral defence provided by my Rook on a6.
