    I beat my old nemesis this evening when he played the advance variation against my French.

    After move 49, we were merely entertaining the spectators, as the result was no longer in doubt.

    Position after 10...c5

    He gave up his center pretty quick. Trading the Bishop for the Knight was a poor idea I think.

    Yes. And to see it a few moves earlier before the exchange of rooks with a draw offer on the table. I'm rightly proud of my endgame last night.

    I assumed such, otherwise the rook exchange makes little sense.
