A nice national day game

A game that I liked (ChessBase 15)
[Event "Live Chess"] [Site "Chess.com"] [Date "2019.08.09"] [Round "?"] [White "kapi2008"] [Black "dr_chessdad"] [Result "0-1"] [ECO "C14"] [WhiteElo "1718"] [BlackElo "1820"] [Annotator "Liew,Mark"] [PlyCount "50"] [EventDate "2019.??.??"] [WhiteClock "0:05:12"] [BlackClock "0:08:31"] { One of my finer attacking games in the french} 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bg5 Be7 5. e5 Nfd7 6. h4 $5 {The Alekheine Chatard attack} h6 7. Bxe7 Qxe7 8. f4 (8. Qg4 O-O 9. Rh3 (9. f4 c5 10. O-O-O cxd4 11. Nb5 Nc6 12. Nxd4 Nc5 (12... Rb8 13. Ngf3 Nc5 14.

O-O-O b5 {Black doesn't waste any time begining a queenside pawnstorm} 13. Nd4 Nxd4 14. Qxd4 b4 $1 {probably overlooked by my opponent. This move allows Black to keep the initiative.} 15. Ne2 (15. Qxb4 Nd3+ {and White can resign}) 15... Rb8 $1 { supports the b pawn and more importantly stops any Bb5+ checks.} (15... a5) 16. f5 $5 {A very good practical move.} a5 (16... exf5 17.
