Team french Ultimate 1.e4 challenge

verylate

little guinea pig, your observation begs the question. Is our team stacked with strong, handsome, debonnaire, sexy, alpha players because winners know that the french is where it's at, or do we become winners by playing the french?

No, it's because all the strong e5/c5/c6 players have better things to do with their time than do a bunch of daily games to defend "their" opening wink.png

Here are 3 games I had over the weekend (OTB) with the French Defense.

 

One thing to note is Black's 8th move in the first one is pre-mature.

So I'm officially switching to Team e5 to balance the rosters a bit.  Was hoping to try something against e5, but they clearly needed a stronger roster.  I'll start the first match threads shortly.

Dsmith, you have done a lot for us. Not just team french, but everyone interested in this team tournament concept. I don't think of this as losing you, but as getting a chance to play against you some time soon. Good chess!

Ivan, welcome aboard. You clearly have the highest rating in Daily, so I think it's best to slot you in at top board. Patrick (Thriller Fan) has a lower daily rating than I have, but his real life rating is much higher than mine. Plus he has a much deeper knowledge of opening theory, so I have no qualms about putting him ahead of me. That leaves me on third board, Chamo2074 on fourth, roughraff, DaBabyBurner, then theoof11. We have got a strong team!
