Dec-16-04  themindset: what an interesting way to annoy a french player.
Dec-16-04  iron maiden: I'm terrible against the French, so I'm always looking for ways to steer away from the main lines. Apparently White made it work here. I'll have to go over this in more detail.
Dec-16-04  Milo: 19.Bxa6!!
Dec-17-04  DanielBryant: There are less than 48 games in the database after White's second move... and White has a 37% win rate. Looks like there's plenty of unexplored territory here.
Dec-22-04  themindset: well, to properly play this as white (from what i can see), you have to approach this as a gambit opening (i have no problems with that) - tempting black to try and hold on to his pawn while you slowly mount a serious attack.
Dec-22-04  drukenknight: As a French player, what do you fall back upon when you are unsure of the strange opening?

I find myself often doing a queens indian after the Nf3.

There seem to be a lot of Dutch looking stuff when I play ...f5. Stuff that looks vaguely Nimzo Indian. Maybe Carokann if Tal was playing white.

I have not seen many fianchettos from white...
