Circles building muscle

Feeling some tactical muscle again. I tend to be very streaky was around my high at playchess of 1600 recently then went for a slide downward. Played a 1750 player last night at chessclub and was happy I could hold my own in the first quarter of the game against an opening I know nothing about. J'adoube will agree with me on this I think, you can play the French first 3-4 moves against anything and thats what I did.

    As long as White plays 1.e4, I think so. . .

    I see why now you'd asked earlier if I'd seen your blog today after I made the "buff" remark ;o) Let's tussle again on playchess soon...

    Wow... White plays 3.Bd3? in front fo the d pawn? I'm not familar with that system but it looks a little weak. Nice win against it!

    3.Bd3 doesn't sound like a 1700 players move even on the internet.
    Perhaps I caught him in the middle of a vodka tasting party.
