Yeah, but perhaps you should play the Center Counter, if you're prepared to play an inferior version of it in order to avoid equalizing with Black in three moves.

( ...would be one of the snarky ways of expressing my view)

It reminds me of 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. ed Qxd5, which seems sounder.


Yeah, but the idea is that I play the French, and want an answer to the French Exchange.

I am experimenting as Black with 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 esd5 Qxd5?! transposing to the Center-Counter.  The disadvantage from the regular CC is that the light-colored bishop is blocked in, but so far at least the surprise value has led to playable positions for me.

Anyone else trying this or have observations, comments?
