  • stupid french

  • The "stupid French" is the 1...e6 2...g6 played by one of Greco's opponents. The only way to avoid the modern French is by playing something other than 1.e4.

  • The problem is that Black has many choices on how to play so 3.Nc3 might turn positional , 3.Nd2 might turn attacking and on 3.e5 the space might seriously backfire.

  • If you like attacking positions go for 3.Nc3.If you like more quiet positions choose 3.Nd2.If you prefer to grab space go for 3.e5.

  • There is no move that is a counter against the "stupid French".It's a matter of taste.Openings like French defense don't have "counters".
