This Tarrasch variation is really nice, and I was recently very lucky to get a draw against a fantastic chess player using what I had researched about this variation.

I'll do my best to share a glimpse into it here, but to really master it would require some research.

I believe it can be a solid repertoire against the French Defense.

Another interesting variation; trying to trap the Queen if the Queen takes the b2 pawn:


And another variation along the same lines: 

I hope you find this interesting and try it out sometime.
