French Classical Music 3...Nf6
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Twiddle dee, twiddle dum, dum, dum.

This collection was lagging behind so I included a French repertoire from Chessbuzz (which contains games that are not classical). Thank you Chessbuzz. Please reference the appropriate ECO code for the Classical lines you seek.

Also note that Steinitz' C11 and Classical C14s are mixed in here. It's not the same thing! Mislabels are possible.
