The E.V is the most popular variation in Intrnet. It is a boring linem for me.

After 4. Nf3 I played 3.., Ag4  3.., Ad6 and 3.. Cc6 ( following a suggestion of Psakys)  but I always struggle to imbalance the position.

OK, Iknow "the stronger player can win with Black" but it is very difficult.

Any suggestion?

Thanks


Play The Dragon.

Sometimes the queen can go to h4:
4.Bd3 Nc6 5.c3 Bd6 6.Nge2 Qh4!? for instance.
It is this opposite castling idea, which convinced me to pick up the French.
  

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.

I am not well versed in Italian notation, but I assume A is a bishop and C a knight?
You may want to take a look at the following setup:
...Bd6, ...Nc6, ...Nge7, ...Bg4,  ...Qd7, ...f6, ...0-0-0 (idea is going pawnstorm on the kingside)
You dont always play it in the same sequence but the setup works against almost anything without an early c4, in which case the play isnt boring anyway.
I got the idea from Uhlmann's book (Silva-Uhlmann Tel Aviv 1964) and it works quite well for me.
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.
