    Seems like a good way to avoid highly tactical Winawer and closed variations, if the mood strikes you

    Weaker players often try this against stronger opposition in the mistaken belief that it is more likely to draw.  But they usually lose all the same.

    The statistics are not a good guide to choosing a soundf opening. The plus score for Black is more an indication of the relative strengths of opponents than the superiority of Black's position.

    Strong players do not play it often because against other strong players it is easier for Black to draw, and agasint weaker players the win is more certain with 2. Nc3, 2. Nd2 or 2. e5

    Someone said 3. ... Qxd5 is "really stupid"

    It is a well analysed line, Black has been scoring well with it, and has been played by GMs ... so it cannot be that stupid.

    Really¡!!!!! I beg to differ! I played the Sicilian for years and switched to French and I'm winning 76% of my games against e4. I am an e4 player as well. Your either scared of it or don't understand it. I have been playing it for 3 months and smoking people anywhere close to my rating. I'll gladly show you in a game if you like.

    @offici4lcreeper you can sacriface d5 so then the queen can take d5 again and it will be more developed, and you are away better because your queen is on the center

    I like this opening against much stronger players. I feel it has a better chance of drawing

    White players often don't realize that while the Exchange French is less tactical than other lines in the French, it is not necessarily a good way of avoiding opening theory since there are various ways for Black to imbalance the game and try to play for a win.
