Online CB gives 24 games on  5.-c5 and 18 on 5.-Nf5.

After 5.-c5  6.c3 is the most popular move
  

1.Nf3! -  beat your opponent by killing his zest for life.

If, instead of 6.Bxh6 you had played
6.c3 cxd4 7.cxd4 Nf6 8.Bd3 Nc6
many games would pop up. Including McShane-Pert from the french-section of chesspublishing.

What are the transposing moves again? I don’t see a knight available for 7...Nf6.

6.c3 looks like a reasonable try that's probably been played many times.  I'd think any strong engine could have given you a good way for White to continue.


By playing .. c5 before .. Nf5, Black doesn't believe that Bxh6 is a problem. If as White, you believe him, or don't want to put it to the test, a normal move such as c3 should be played. This just transposes back to more frequently played lines.

What is the actual question here?
Why black is playing the way he does?

After 4.e5 black is thinking that this is turning into some kind of french advance, where white has played Nbd2

In the french advance black often plays c5-cxd4, Nh6-Nf5, Nc6, Qb6, in some order or another.

And here black does.

If, instead of 6.Bxh6 you had played
6.c3 cxd4 7.cxd4 Nf6 8.Bd3 Nc6
many games would pop up. Including McShane-Pert from the french-section of chesspublishing.

Hi,
this is about a game I played last week. I might be rated 1800, my opponent about 2150. I knew he would be playing 3...Be7 so I went with preparation into the game:

[White "Lou_Cyber"]
[Black "N.N."]
[Result "1-0"]
[ECO "C03"]
1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nd2 Be7 4. e5 Nh6!? (Main line runs 4...c5) 5. Ndf3 c5!? (Main line is Nf5. This move is not mentioned in the french section, and I can´t find any comments on it in my books. In my database I can find only 4 games - 3 won by black!) 6. Bxh6 gxh6
