information & description:

A guide to lines of the French where White sets the pace.
With the Advance Variation of the French, White establishes a space advantage, and will often seek to exploit this by creating attacking chances on the Kingside, or bind on the Queenside. Both sides have a variety of systems at their disposal, and the player who is better acquainted with the intricacies of these lines will tend to come out on top. With the Exchange Variation, positions tend to be open & generally symmetrical. White can attempt to seize the initiative or choose to play more solidly, and players need to understand the differences in how to handle both styles.
