My System

The Advance Variation of the French is a system that can be found in MY SYSTEM by Aron Nimzowitsch. White trys to play for space on the king–side and black is playing for a counter attack on the queenside. Bobby Fishcer would usually if not always play 3. Nc3 thus avoiding 3. e5 advance variation. I woulld not personally want to use this unless I exhausted other French Systems with no success. This would just serve as a test to your opponent to make sure they did their homework and know how to handle the advance variation. Sometimes people are not good at handling certain positions if they are not booked up and you can take advantage of that.
