  • Who cares about stupid engines????

  • My assesment according to engines and databases is Nf6 as 3rd behind c5 and Be7 and slightly before the Rubinstein if white just follow the main line with Ne2 Nf3

  • Also, check out some of the games and books written from German International Grandmaster Wolfgang Uhlmann, he is one of the great players that uses the French as well as dissected the French to a fighting force, it is worth a look.

  • There are really 2 ways to play vs the French-Tarrasch line. One is c5 which is very popular as you mentioned, another is Nf6, which does provoke an early e5 but it leads to major counter attacking in and around the center area. I think that Be7 is also a good line, as well as Bd7. It just depends on your game and strategy. Myself I like Nf6 the most before C5. Just my two cents worth.
