  • i play this variation hoping to get the Orthoschnapp gambit. Very tricky in blitz but they can easily transpose to IQP games

  • Ok cool but what do you guys think setting up a tournament with that varation?

    by Mustangcoffee 2 months ago

  • I often play 2.c4 against the French in blitz. It's not dangerous, and Black can play play 2...c5, often transposing into QP and symmetrical English structures.
