In my database there are a few games in which White got the better position.
5.bxc5 bxc5 6.c3 will become an Advance Variation in which the open b-file does not necessarily benefit Black.
  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

About this delayed wing gambit, one of the stronger players at local club plays it against French to avoid theory. I dont play french myself but I think black can even play b6 after b4 and it is not clear what the pawn is doing at b4. I saw some game in that line where black got a better position.

Usually black receives a good position playing normal French moves against 2.Nf3
For example: 1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. e5 Nfd7 5. d4 c5 6. dxc5 Nc6 7. Bf4 Bxc5 8. Bd3 f6 9. exf6 Nxf6 10. O-O O-O 11. Qe2 Bd7 =
The other good setup for black can be:  1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 d5 3. Nc3 d4 4. Ne2 c5 5. c3 Nc6 6. cxd4 Nf6!? 7. e5 Nd7 (7 .... Nd5!? might be a good try too, although more risky) 8. dxc5 Ndxe5 9. Nxe5 Nxe5 10. d4 Bxc5 11. Be3 (11. Qa4 Bd7 12. Qb3 Bb4 13. Nc3 Nc6) 11 .... 12. Nc3 Nc6 13. Be2 0-0
The choice is yours.  Wink

@Arnaudov: Welcome on French forum ...

I don't see another ideas for White after 2..d5 except a "wing gambit" 3.e5 c5 4.b4!?, a classical two knights variation with 3.Nc3 or an Exchange with 3.exd5 exd5 4.d4

Of course 2... d5 is perfectly sensible and the natural answer for a French player. This has recently been discussed in this thread:

Maybe you want to show some games of yours to see where your problems are.

As a French Defense player I've been getting 2 Nf3 more lately. Is this some new Anti-French idea?  And if you face it, what do you do? I have toyed with 2...c5 but I just don't play the Sicilian well nor like the positions very much. And 2...d5 doesn't seem to go well either. Any ideas or comments?
