French Chigorin 2.Qe2 and A-Chatard Gambit Attck
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

Two totally different approaches to the French Defense.

* Dec-30-15 Richard Taylor:
Also the Alekhine-Chatard is good in the case of 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 Bg5 Be7 5 e5 Nd7 and if now the Alekhine gambit 6 h4 Bxg5 7 hxg5 Qxg5 8 Nh3 Qe7 (it can also go to h6 but I think this is best ...Qd8 is not good) and 9. Bf5 and there are all kinds of moves. Also Black can play if 6 h4 something such as a6 or c5 when 7 Bxe7 and then either Kxe7 or Bxe7. Taking with the King is playable and possibly better than with the B...but if Black isn't careful in that line Black goes down quickly in many games. But as my main course I use the Tarrasch. These lines are extras or 'desserts'...
