    Well done mate! Your King must have been tired after that trek!

    I was suprised he didn't catch on actually, I thought he would start moving his king up and get the pawn up too but he never saw the danger.

    You were lucky that your opponent didn't know how to effectively attack.

    There is no luck in chess...Only correct and incorrect. Good game!

    "f3" looks suspect. You had better study the French some more.

    It has been played before, it occurs twice on my database and the position after 5. f3 occurs by transposition a further 6 times. The only game where ratings are quoted was between a 2244 player and 2285, so they aren't pushovers. Having said all that your intuition is probably right as white lost in all but 2 of the 8 games, the 2 games that white won continued 5. ... dxe4 as in the game here.

    If you're going to play f3, I much prefer that you play it in gambit style allowing exf3, Nxf3 with a lead in development. However even that it currently way out of favor with grandmasters today.

    Course not being GM's helps here!
