S.S.S.S. French Selections
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Fredthebear copied eight games from Saturn, eight games from Shams, and six games from Sigi. (Topalov vs Bareev, 1994 is a shared game from two collections.) Thank you Saturn! Thank you Shams! Thank you Sigi! Simsim contributed a few games as well. Thank you Simsim!

Some White victories have been interspersed throughout as a "heads up" to Black.

Saturn wrote:
In this repertiore, I will be recommending 5...Qb6 vs the advance, 3...c5 against the Tarrasch , 7... dxc4 against the Steinitz and the McCutcheon vs 4.Bg5. Less critical tries such as the KIA and the exchange will also be covered.

Against the advance, the setup with Nh6-f5 is popular and is what i am recommending. Although please note that after Be2 black must first play cxd4 as white may play Bxh6!

The Tarrasch is a solid choice for a small advantage, rather than the radical lines after Nc3. Here I will be reccomending 3-...c5! Rather tha Nf6 because it usually leads to strategic play rather than tactical. After exd5 , Qxd5! is a good choice. After 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nd2 c5 4. exd5 Qxd5 5. Ngf3 cxd4 6. Bc4 Qd6 7. O-O Nf6 8. Nb3 Nc6 9. Nbxd4 Nxd4 10. Nxd4 a6! 11. Re1 Qc7 12. Qe2! I found an interesting option in 12-...h6!? Which does not allow a bright future for the white bishop. Black has has had no losses in the database.
