Milner-Barry Gambit Versus The French Defense Game 1

Here is one of my old wins from when I was in the US Army and was stationed in Giessen, Hessen, Germany. This game was one of many chess games that I played at the recreation center on the US Air Force base in Frankfurt. My opponent, a 1900 rated player, seemed a bit surprised that a 1500 rated player would play this aggressively against him. Sometimes, surprising my opponents works. I did not get into the main line of the gambit, but I did intended to play it, so I am putting this game in that category.

Although Houdini 3 disagrees with some of my endgame moves, it really does not matter if I played the second or third best moves. I was still winning.
