You're welcome. I wanted to try out my French Advance knowledge on someone, so the timing was perfect!

Why do I get the feeling that you don't like your white-squared bishop? :)

ZZ, your conditional said 9...Na6 but I assume you mean 9...Na5

If you're still happy to play that, my reply is 10.Nbd2

If you'd like to play something other than 9...Na5 I have no objections.

Yes, I was surprised you went after the pawn ... this idea comes up often in the French Advance and black should always be careful before considering snapping up the d4 pawn (i.e. its defence is sometimes indirect because of the threat of winning material due to a Bd3 checking the king either on g6 (if Black is uncastled) or h7 (if castled).

It was really over after falling into the discovered attack with 13. Nfxd4, having to jettison a piece.

26. Qg7+ seemed still more forcing as above.
