In his book How to play against e4, Neil Mcdonald suggest 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d6 3. e5 b6, and then after ...Ba6 exchange of bishops.
What are your opinions of this line?
Is this line something you...

French with e4-f4
See a lot of 1.e4 and 2.f4 online. Wondering how to play against this. Sometimes White doesn't play d4 and I am not sure what to do.
If he plays c3 and d4 then I assume it is like a F...

C02: French Advance - solid lines for Black?
I've decided that my Black repertoire is too ambitious and unbalanced and I should include some strategic options as well, for tired days or against attacking maniacs. This should be possible within t...

A Cousin in the Hecht-Reefschlager/Guimard Family
After 1 e4 e6, 2 d4 d5, 3 e5, Black can play 3 ... Nc6. Now, 4 Nc3 transposes to the Hecht. But 4 Nf3 gives the line an independent character. After 4 ... f6, 5 Bd3, the standard plan of 5 ... Qe7,...

C02: Game Analysis of 5.Be3 (with a N+B ending)
This is an analysis of a 90 60 game.
1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. e5 c5 4. c3 Nc6 5. Be3
Slightly uncommon and outside of my book knowledge but when in doubt I follow the normal plan of Akobian by playin...

Is it worth playing the Advance French as white with Be2 instead of a3?
I don't really want to play a3 lines, but haven't been thrilled with my results with Be2 so considering going to 3. Nc3 i...

C02: New take on the Milner Barry
The traditional Milner-Barry Gambit reached by
1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 e5 c5 4 c3 Nc6 5 Nf3 Qb6 6 Bd3 is relatively rare as the pawn offer can be accepted with 6 ... cxd4 7 cxd4 Bd7 8 0-0 Nxd4

C02: Is the French Advance a good weapon?
I decided to change from 1.d4 to 1.e4. I am trying to have a main line repertoire but one that is not so wide. I am thinking in the advance French as my weapon against The French. Is it a good choice?...

C02: French Advance Uhlmann's: ...c4 and ...f6
on 11/18/10 at 22:07:07:
When I taught the French I just followed Uhlmann's anti-Advance repertoire; great on lower levels and if someone approaches master level they can simply add 5...Qb6 6.a3 Nh6 or 6.a3 c4...
