French Defense
Compiled by schaduw2
--*--

Games from the Dutch book: Hans Bouwmeester, Prisma Schaakboek 10, Openingen". In his repertoire the French Advance is both recommended for black and for white, so you have a look at both sides. I added some games from Marovic & Parma, An Opening Repertoire for Black and from Euwe, Praktische Schaaklessen 3 (1977). Euwe recommends 3.Nd2 for white. I also added a few more interesting games from other books.
