Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-17-05  semesterian: Maybe it's just me, but in the French Defense I've always been a bit afraid of White's three-to-two pawn advantage on the Queenside. It takes a lot of guts to play the French nowadays, although this comment would only make sense to a 2700+ player. For us chess peons, anything goes.
Apr-17-05  RisingChamp: There is nothing to indicate that 2700 players cant use the French with success at the highest level-just that the French is out of fashion and at that level only very fashionable ultra respectable openings are used.During analysis and home preparation normal chess players can analyze very deeply also and if the French were unplayable,this fact would certainly have come to light.Finally <this comment would only make sense to a 2700+ player> are you saying you believe you are talking nonsense?
