Tired of the Scandinavian?

Well, me too. I am a dedicated 1.e4 e5 player and I like playing classical stuff like the Italian game (Giuoco Piano, Two Knights defense) and Ruy Lopez. I get into a bad mood when I see the scandinavian, which is 1. e4 d5.

Well....I want to share on idea to play against this opening. This would be a transformation into the French defense. I am not too familiar with the French, but this is one of the reason why  I would like to study it more, because it seems that black players transpose into the French automatically, which I kind of like.

I hope you enjoy:
