Thank you - always appreciate practical advice!Ok I had a look at the game - let me offer some ideas you may consider.
1 e4 Nc6 2 d4 d5 3 e5 Bf5 4 c3 e6 Advanced Nimzo you could consider looking at a slightly different move order, getting to a similar position but has many of the same themes.
1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 e5 c5 here is a standard Advanced French French - unlimited in possibilities. The Bf5 and your restricted c pawn in Nimzo are tricky for you to play. Just a thought ... you will find heaps of Advanced French theory online to go over games. I used to play the Advanced French myself - the bishop on F5 is just an easy target for white.
Advanced Nimzo is good for blitz ... but not so good in longer forms of the game ( but thats only an opinion) if you like the Nimzo play it.
Thank you - always appreciate practical advice!
Think its all those brilliant books and brilliant players you have access too ... its so much easier learning from others than trying to invent the wheel yourself.
When I lived in Melbourne I certainly found the ‘chess scene’ to be somewhat lacking. I did attend a club a couple of times but for example I wasn’t aware of a state club league, just tournaments. There’s a lot more going on over here (and we’ve just returned to over the board league chess which is exciting!)
