French Defence Advance Delpire

Jason Delpire played crushed a French Defence with a gambit after 3.e5. Jason wrote: "Played in the last round of Lichess 4545 League. My opponent had no idea this was a real gambit, he thought I just blundered. Took my time, trying to continually find active moves so as to not let my advantage slip away. It was an enjoyable game!"

Delpire (1637) - JohnJPershing (1662), Rated Classical lichess, 08.04.2018 begins 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 4.c3 Nc6 5.Nf3 Bd7 6.Bd3 Qb6 7.0-0 [White continues in gambit style. Stronger in theory is 7.dxc5 Bxc5 8.0-0+/=] 7...cxd4 8.cxd4 Nxd4 9.Nxd4 Qxd4 10.Nc3 Qxe5 [Black should be happy with just one extra pawn and play 10...a6! 11.Qe2!? although White still has some attacking chances.] 11.Re1 Qc7 12.Nxd5 Qc6? [White has a big attack. 12...Qa5 13.Rxe6+ fxe6 14.Qh5+ Kd8 15.Bg5+ Nf6 16.Nxf6+/=]
13.Be4 [13.Bb5! Qxb5 14.Nc7+ wins queen.] 13...Qd6? [With this blunder, White has a big advantage. 13...Rc8 14.Ne7+-] 14.Bf4 e5 15.Bxe5 Qxe5 16.Bf3 [White the queen.] 16...Bd6 17.Rxe5+ Bxe5 18.Qe2 f6 19.Nc7+ Kf7 20.Qc4+ Kf8 21.Nxa8 1-0
