Compiled by fredthebear

ECO codesedit
The Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings includes an alphanumeric classification system for openings that is widely used in chess literature. Codes C00 to C19 are the French Defence, broken up in the following way (all apart from C00 start with the moves 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5): C00 1.e4 e6 without 2.d4, or 2.d4 without 2...d5 (early deviations) C01 2.d4 d5 (includes the Exchange Variation, 3.exd5) C02 3.e5 (Advance Variation)
C03 3.Nd2 (includes 3...Be7; C03C09 cover the Tarrasch Variation) C04 3.Nd2 Nc6 (Guimard Variation)
C05 3.Nd2 Nf6
C06 3.Nd2 Nf6 4.e5 Nfd7 5.Bd3
C07 3.Nd2 c5 (includes 4.exd5 Qxd5)
C08 3.Nd2 c5 4.exd5 exd5
C09 3.Nd2 c5 4.exd5 exd5 5.Ngf3 Nc6
C10 3.Nc3 (includes the Rubinstein Variation, 3...dxe4) C11 3.Nc3 Nf6 (includes the Steinitz Variation, 4.e5; C11C14 cover the Classical Variation) C12 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 (includes the McCutcheon Variation, 4...Bb4) C13 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4 (Burn Variation)
C14 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 Be7
C15 3.Nc3 Bb4 (C15C19 cover the Winawer Variation) C16 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5
C17 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5
C18 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 (includes the Armenian Variation, 5...Ba5) C19 3.Nc3 Bb4 4 e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Ne7 7.Nf3 and 7.a4

White often uses this approach to avoid the Winawer 3.Bb4 pin.
