We can chat long time about such a chess match: is it useful ? for chess fans of famous eternal chess stars ? why not a good clash Shirov vs Topalov match ? and so on.....but I will not...I prefer to look what experts from long time play in French defense....and here is a "Steiner variation" (or "Agincourt variation" where English meet the  French 1.c4 e6 Benjamin-van der Sterren,Munich 1994) with 1.e4 e6 2.c4  Smiley

9...Bf5 is interesting move because White has not yet opportunity of beginning attack with 11.Ne5 after 10.Re1 Nfxd5 because of 11...Nb4 threat

I believe Black can improve with 12...c6 (instead of Bxd2). What do you think about game ?
