  fredthebear: Black exploits White's ugly h-file with 28...Nf6, then continually improves his pieces while exploiting White's reactions. The lack of serious pressure on Black allows Spraggett to construct a jigsaw puzzle.

  perfidious: On seeing this move order, one wonders whether Spraggett knew of 4....d4, which has scored well for Black, or was simply content to backdoor his way into the French.

  fredthebear: My guess is that Spraggett was at least somewhat prepared for this move order against White's Sicilian Delayed Alapin approach (B40) [or Delayed Alapin (B50) against ...d6]. Both players "co-operated" to eventually transpose the above game into a French Defense, Advance variation.

Sicilian (B40)

This Sicilian-French Defense was played on occasion by Mikhail Tal and Tigran Petrosian in the 1960's and 1970's. White has a wide variety of useful replies, so Black must be prepared to play a Sicilian or French Defense, open or closed structures. That's plenty to chew on. However, if one already plays one ...e6 defense or the other, it could be a welcome addition.
