Both Keano and TJ are, depressingly, right.
  

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

Watching England v. Trinidad & Tobago this morning (my timezone), for some reason my mind wandered away from the game.  Sven-Joran showed an impeccable poker-face, and chose interesting patterns of play for his pieces.  This led me to the question - if Sven was white against the French, and had a 500-pt rating advantage, what variation would he use to express his unique strategic talents?


I think he'd first check what the british papers/media recommend and try to do the exact opposite...  Wink

simple - exchange variation. Then he would put all his pieces in the way of each other and outplay himself, before his opponent managed to blunder just in time
