Maybe you have the book since you're calling it Barcza-Larsen.
yep have it ... and technically it seems the Barcza-Larsen is ONLY the 3 ... dxe5 variation,
http://www.365chess.com/search_result.php?search=1&m=6&n=1888&ms=e4.e6.d4.c5.d5.exd5&bid=7853 is a good set of games by Drazic.
Notice as I said Kings Bishop goes e7 then back to f8 after castling. Looks like Drazic values the Queen Bishop more than others, which is my experience. Also Queen knight tends to come out a6-c7 adding pressure on to the e5 pawn as well as supporting a b5 thrust if c4 has been played ... but Drazic seems to like it going d7-f8-g7 and since he is 2400 and I am not ...
Thank you for giving necessary information and resources on this line.. !!! :)
I played this defense out of novelty for the first time today. White played 3.d5 and I responded 3...e5 and closed the position in dutch fashion with an easy win. It reminded me of my favorite defense, the Clarendon court. Does anyone have a refutation for 3...e5? If so please let me know cause it looked at least equal to me. My main concern was 4.d6 but it seemed like whites pawn would hang.
A game of mine. Not essentially of high quality. I just posted it as it has Franco-Benoni variation
