  Domdaniel: More evidence that the Exchange French is actually good for Black -- after 3.exd5 exd5 White is in a kind of Zugzwang: whatever formation he (or she) adopts, Black can counter with a better one.

In the line played here, 5.Qf3 is dubious. The reply 5...Nc6, hitting d4 and developing fast on the queenside shows why. White has to play 6.c3 -- the tempting 6.Ne2, as here, is a mistake.

A recent game of mine continued amusingly with 6.Ne2 Be6 7.0-0? Qh4, and White lost a pawn for zero compensation.

  Domdaniel: <VinnyRoo> What, a mere two queens and four pawns down? Just a flesh wound.

Maybe White wanted to reach move 64 for some odd reason. You're right - the lost pawn ending after 38...RxB would be a good place to resign.
