French Defence Alekhine Chatard

Ray Haines sacrificed a pawn in the French Defence with the Alekhine-Chatard Attack. When Black grabs the pawn in the main line 6.h4 Bxg5 7.hxg5 Qxg5 8.Nh3 Qe7, White can gain time with 9.Qg4 threatening g7. Instead, Ray Haines developed a bishop which is also fine. Black failed to defend accurately, and White won with a strong finish.
