I am looking to play as black against e4 the french. What i need from anyone willing is good discritions of Rubenstien variation, advanced and exchange variation so i can force my opponment in to balanced middle gmae. I am also wondering being used to the dutch what other openings i should play. Can you help me Please?
I see you are trying to boil your repertoire down to Rubinstein, Advance and Exchange. The Rubinstein V is bad for your chess. It may seem like a good defensive choice but it gives you little chance to win. You should work on other ways to face the Tarrasch V and Nc3.
In the Advance V after 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 e5 black should challenge the pawn chain with 3...c5. Further challenges to the d4 square are ...Nc6 and ...Qb6.
The Exchange V is no worry.
