Taking the pawn, generally to be followed by queenside castling, has long been one of the main lines.  You could consult a general reference such as ECO or MCO on such questions.  The latter's main line for 6...Bxg5 follows the game below (albeit with the move order 8. Qd3 g6 -- Kortchnoi played 8...Nc6 in a well-known loss to Kasparov which is also cited -- 9. Nf3 Qe7); it thinks White was slightly better out of the opening.


[Event "Politiken Cup 28th"]
[Site "Copenhagen"]
[Date "2006.07.22"]
[Round "9"]
[White "Aabling Thomsen,Jakob"]
[Black "Grassie,Duncan"]
[Result "0-1"]
[Eco "C14"]
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7 5.e5 Nfd7 6.h4 Bxg5 7.hxg5 Qxg5 8.Nf3 Qe7

Hi Chesspub,
im new here and already start with a problem i got in my last game.
I'm playing the French Defense since 3 Weeks now and meet the first time in the classical variation 6. h4   -  i've heard about it and because of that i didn't take the bishop plus the pawn. But is it dangerous to take it and if i do so better castle long?

hope you can help me out

greets

Lukas
