Thank you for your reply. But I actually was wondering what Black should do in, lets say, next 10 moves if white accepts the gift with de.

5.ed is the critical move leading to the Exchange-Winawer variation, a main variation which has been played in Marockzy-Capablanca,Sebastian 1911.

In one of Psakhis's books about the French, Psakhis gives:  "So Black still has to find a way to full equality after 5.ed!?, a move so innocuous at first sight" .. no more comment is needed for the strength and interest of this line for the White player.

After 5...oo the plan for White is the same that in 5...exd5 line: 6.Qf3! exd5 7.Bxf6 Qxf6 8.Qxf6 gxf6 9.Ne2 c6 10.ooo and small advantage to White (Suetin). Black can play 8...Bxc3+ 9.bxc3 gxf6 to create double-pawns on c-file, but it's more easy for White than for Black, to make them disappear with the c4-pawn move.

In the main line 5...exd5 6.Qf3! (Pilssbury) Black can try 6..Be6, allowing the double-pawns on f6 but controlling the important square c4. Another intesresting move is 6...Nc6, but the safer is 6...Bxc3+ because it transposes to main line after 7.bxc3 (7.Qxc3 oo =) Qe7+ 8.Be2 Nbd7 9.Nh3=

I Saw this line: 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Bb4 5.ed 0-0.     What do you have to say about it?
