Sorry, FTB has not played over many of these games. He had a bad experience with this French variation. Lack of experience (not enough model game rehearsals) in the line was the likely culprit. To play an opening well, one should understand how the greats play it well (and the various pitfalls they avoided) before ushering it out thyself. It's not just the moves the greats made, it's the ones they did not make that factor in.
