    Isn't this the exact way the Sicilian Taimanov opens?

    I have just started playing OTB after about 3 years online. Against 2 unrated opponents as black I responded to e4 with e6 bacause I like to play the French. However both times the response was Nf3. So I suggest that French players know this opening too.

    I played this as black exclusively. I OK results with it. It is solid. However I to often ran into positions many moves deep that we playable but I didn't care for.

    I switched to the French and love it! If someone plays Nf3 I play c5 and what do you know... The opening I have played for years.

    This opening for black creates a positional brain buster. Lol my opponent didnt make a mistake or innaccuracy untill his 39th move and I meanwhile clumsily made it to the 39th move with a handfull of quesionable moves (by the 2000 level comps standards) yet in the end came out with the win. Each chess game is a journey thats for sure.

    Heres the analysis. http://www.chess.com/home/computer_analysis?id=84768002&game_type=1

    I like it. Gives the queen options, bishop serves as hunter, knight serves as recon.

    I happened to play this as black and continued with a fianchetto on the Kingside, but the computer analysis considered this a 'mistake' ...and indeed, it led to very strange and sharp complications ...

    I transpose into this when I play the French defence but my opponent plays Nf3 instead of d4; probably the name comes from this order of moves.

    This can be many things, not only a Paulsen, like the GM above said.  This can lead to Taimanov, Scheveningen, and even a Kan variation of the Sicilian.  

    However, it is true that this is NOT a Sicilian French variation.  2... e6 is just as good as any other variation for Black.  The Taimanov is considered the safest, best overall scoring variation for Black.
