Seems like a great opening... I was trying a different french opening that wasn't working for me.
It was mentioned above that the white bishop is blocked in, what does everyone think about moving the bishop out after the first pawn move to c4, and then parking it on b3?
I like this kind of openings!!
Love it! It allows white to establish a good pawn chain early in the game
i agree with chauncy. I might use this.
I like this opening though I sometimes get irritated bcoz my white bishop is blocked
Knight sacrifice on d5!
Quiet a nice idea. Of course 16...Rfe8 was wrong ...
la jugada corecta es es 2...d5 3.Cd2 Cf6 4.Cgf3 b6¡? 5.c3(5.g3 dxe4 ¡ 6.dxe4 Ac5¡ 7.Ab5+ Ad7 8.Ad3 Cc6 =) c5 6.Ae2 Dc7
Nevermind the first comment I posted, and by the way this opening is exellent. I might use it in some of my games.
I like this opening. I mught use it in
i'M NOT TOO FAMILIAR WITH THAT OPENING, D3 FOR WHITE, I HAVE TO STUDY FIRST.
Its funny how how differently people see things. This is my opening, I've had good success with it, and find plenty of options.
White's second move is awful.
After the french defense I usually do e5.

Doesn't provide too many options for white or black.
its a good idia to play the "KIA" against french players!
i tried it sever times and achive excelent result , but however I prefer 2-b3!
If whites queen pawn moves up 2 rather than this variations 1 then black responds by putting his queens pawn up 2 places on d5. I'm not sure what your talking about max!
"Why not move the pawn in front of the queen 2 spaces?"
Maxtactics, are you talking about White or Black? If Black, then you're suggesting the correct move (2...d5). If White, then we play d3 instead of d4 because it's the King's Indian Attack, and that's the correct move for the KIA. If we played 2. d4, it would not be the KIA.
Why not move the pawn in front of the queen 2 spaces?
