There is a good chapter in McDonald's French book.

GK's catalog is a good place to start, e.g.: http://streathambrixtonchess.blogspot.com/2009/01/interesting-french-exchange-ix...

If the Winawer Exchange 3...Bb4 4.exd5 is included, there are probably several dozen famous/important games.

If the White players only knew of this -- then the simple plan could always work for them a half-move before it worked for their opponents, or something.

The exchange French is silly. In 12 years of playing the French I haven't lost a single (non blitz) game.
The simple plan of: ...Bd6 | ...Ne7 | ...c6 |...Bf5 | ...f6 | ...Na6 | ...0-0 | ... Qd7 | ... Rad8 | and expending on the king side, always works.


Can you post a complete game using that scheme against a level foe?

thx

Thanks for the reply SF.  It wasn't that one, but checking out your suggestion made me think, "no, I want one that includes the game Moskovic-Short" and suddenly I realised I could use that as a search term.

No idea why I didn't think of that before, but anyway the thread I was looking for is this one:-

I don't know if this is the thread you were thinking of, but it mentions several classic games:

C01: French Exchange - famous/important games

I was browsing the forum yesterday trying to find a thread that I remember from a while back.  I'm thinking of one where somebody published a list of all the games that s/he felt were important and/or famous French Exchanges games.

Perhaps I've simply invented this memory, though, because I looked through the entire forum yesterday and althoug I opened all the likely looking threads and I can't find the one I'm after.

Does anybody recall the one I'm talking about?
