    White is losing with all first moves after 1..e6. The only advantage for white is when 1e3! is played.openings.png

    Van't Kruijs recognized this in 1878, and stole the french advantage from black. Garry Kasparov plays it vs Fritz 1994 and  had a decisive advantage on move 15 of 2.20+...only to play some bad moves and then it was +1 black.
