well 8.a3 a6 9.dc5!? Nc5 10.b4 may be worse a try

Thx for the suggestion. My opponnent didn't play the french, I was pressing nearly the whole game but unfortunately it ended in a draw after some mistakes. Are there any good books about this Be7 line, maybe only from the black side?

regards Tom

Thx for the suggestion. I think 8.a3! isn't something completely different. Looks like white has nothing better than to transpose after a3 a6 Dd2. And here black may also have a to use the early a3 and black hasn't to play b5.

8.a3!? instead of 8.Qd2 is an interesting alternative - moreover you dont play into the prep of your opp, but deviate first

C11: Early Be7 Steinitz

I'm preparing for my next opponent(an FM), he is playing an early a6 against Qd2.

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. e5 Nfd7 5. f4 c5 6. Nf3 Nc6 7. Be3 Be7 8. Qd2 a6

I'm a subscriber to the french section(only one game with an early a6) and I own the Khalifmanbook who recommends to take on c5 instead of Qd2. Which book covers the Be7 line in your opinion(from the white side) best? What are your recommendations?

Thanks in advance
Tom
