Well done on the win.
But let's be honest, Black isn't much of a chess player. Mismatches like this are commonplace in the Championship 1st round. It needs sorting out in my opinion. Otherwise it provides one further reason why the Championship is an unappealing tournament for some players. A pity, really

Is this a King's Gambit ?
