    Couldn't recommend this opening enough. I can't lose against the french anymore. I beat Sigma Chess at 2500 with this. I'm not 2500.

    Try the following two:

    1.e4 e6 2.b3 with the idea of sacrificing e4

    1.e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Be3!? Dxe4 4. Nc3, Nf6 5.f3!?

    @Schevenadorf:

           With so many 1.e4 players annoyed by 1...e6 (me included), it's surprising the Reti Gambit in the French isn't more popular. As corny as the label 'hyper-modern' may be to describe an idea that's over a century old, 2.b3 still makes for enterprising play today. After 2...d5 3.Bb2 dxe4 4.Nc3, black is faced with the confusing choice of trying to hold on to the pawn or catching up in development..........

       As for 3.Be3!?, I thought I invented this idea myself, until I checked a few DBs and saw it all over the place in a bunch of 19th century games. I still see it once in a while in 2000+ level games. It's fun in blitz.....

    makes sense tho, since all the french are gay anyway...

    Yeah, like you are some piece of work yourself. Typical d-bag of an American (I don't believe your flag).

    What makes them "gay"? The fact that they do stuff differently that what others do (more touchy feely so what)? And btw, by gay, you mean something that violates your typical hyper-masuculine motto that you gotta be cool, tough, "be a man", and fooling with women, to not be gay. I know your type. In time, I hope to see the day, that we all can stop using words like "gay" in substitution for stupid or dumb.

    In time, I will see to that, people like you will be exterminated, a new age without nonsensical stereotypes started as a result of peer pressure among your friends. 


    Back to the topic at hand.

    2.b3 is perfectly fine for both colors.

    With either side having reasonable chances to push their plans through.

    hodebisabode, you're just mad I pwned you.

    Btw i am not talking about all americans, I didnt mean to offend them at all.I am talking about the whinny trolls that try make the social world of the internet burn.

    Maybe instead of castles, black should take on e4 twice and then castle = position.

    3.Bd3 is also playable like 3.b3

    yoou can go 3.Nf3 Nf6 and then there are two options either 4.e5 or 4.Bg5 and then maybe e5 or you can go 3.e5 c5 4.Nf3
