Mike Serovey Defeats Robert L. Eisert

I found an old correspondence chess game in which I deliberately chose to play the Black side of the French defense. Although the French has a reputation for being drawish I did manage to win this one. Even so, I rarely play the Black side of the French because I think that I have better winning chances with the Sicilian or Modern defense. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at So far, it looks like I won every game in this section. Here is the game in PGN.
