Greetings once again, players and fellow patzers.
I wanted to make a thread about this opening.
Up until the game below, I cannot recall ever playing this variation before,
so was on unfamiliar grounds to say the least.
I don't think I messed up too badly anywhere at all, but I am aware there may have been better moves in the opening (for both white and black).
For example, for my 2nd move I perhaps should have taken the "free" pawn offered on e5,
but my conservative nature made me play a relatively weaker/more passive move.
If anyone has played with, or otherwise has good general logic with regards to this variation, your thoughts and input are most welcome.
EDIT: my pgn wasn't working for some reason... which is strange, I didn't do anything differently (?)
