Great vid. Thanks so much for posting these vids Zibbit. I've been playing the French much of this year because of your example. I had already been playing the Benoni as well, but now I'm trying some Simon Williams fun with the Classical Dutch. Love watching your French games. At my level I rarely get to play a main line except for the advance. I see the Winawer exchange and 1.e4 e6 2. Bc4 & 1. e4 e6 2.c4 & 1. e4 e6 2. f4, and yes this two knights thing we just saw.

Just again many thanks for the time and effort. It is appreciated.

6.Bg5!? is the Jackal Attack, invented by untitled Irish player Adrian Skelton. 7.dxc5 is the move!
I have played this a lot and I even posted a quick video on a blitz game in this line viewtopic.php?t=4262

There is also this crazy sacrificial line with double-rook sacrifice, which is actually good for White practically speaking and Black should avoid (note that these are both 2300+ players)::

Sometimes even the French defense is full of surprises!
