Blitz Chess #360: French Defense, Advance, Wade variation

This is a blitz chess game I played as black with time control 5|0. The opening played was the French Defense, Advance, Wade variation. Black’s idea with the Wade variation is to solve the issue of the problem bishop, namely black’s light-squared bishop. White anticipates this, and has sites set on striking with c4 and an ensuing d5. The resulting structure was one I didn’t have much experience with, and it wasn’t long before a a pretty unique position arose, where the black queen stood deep in the enemy position.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8.
