Stonewall Queen Pawn to Bird

Retirement. Yes, I finally got there last year. To celebrate I played Stonewall Attack. I was moving from one stage of life to another. Our chess game move from one opening to another. We started as a Queen Pawn Game after 1.d4 d5 ended up as a Bird's Opening after White chose 2.f4.

That surprise did take long. But I was in the mood for a quick three minute game, so everything was going to be fast. I had challenged a guest on the Internet Chess Club. Thus I do not know his rating. My focus was on speed with the hope that my moves would be good enough.

White began picking off my pawn, while I looked for open lines. My major trump card was the advanced e-pawn. Slowly it worked forward. Then faster. Until move 31 when I queened my e-pawn for checkmate!
