The French is far and away the best opening!  Give me White (3.Nc3, 3.e5, or the KIA) or Black (Exchange, Advance w/ 5...Qb6, Tarrasch w/ 3...c5, Winawer (7...Qc7, 7...O-O, 7...Kf8, 7...Nf5), McCutchen, Classical, Steinitz, Rubinstein, etc.  Would be easier to say what I don't play as Black!  Advance Lines with an early ...Bd7, Guimmard, Burn, and pretty much discontinued the Closed Tarrasch.
