The beginning of the French Defence series, inspired by Duggan's Tromp and Colle series. I'm black.

I'm going to resign. This game is lost for me. Blundered two pieces and my connected passed pawns are easily blocked.

The evil 2.Qe2. How tiresome it is to have to remember to refresh one's preparation against that nonsense every six months or so!

Actually black's opening setup was okay (although that is not the normal move order for it) but the queenside pawn push, making the black c-pawn backwards was a bad idea. Just block the centre with ...e5. Quite likely the queenside will end up locked up and black is fine on the kingside .

I was expecting ...a6 then ...b5 as in the Czech Benoni, in which case I thought Black would be a little better.

I should have played Ba6 to prepare b5 instead recapturing with the rook (which white kicked around a bit and gained enough time to develop). Also the purpose of Ba6 would to aim at the seemingly weak d pawn, using b5 to help weaken it. My d4 move was to keep that d pawn weak.
