1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Advance Variation

 [3.exd5 exd5 is the exchange variation 4.Bd3 c5 5.dxc5 Bxc5 6.h3 Nf6 7.Nf3 0–0 8.0–0 Qd6 (8...Qb6) 9.Nbd2 Bxh3 10.gxh3 Qg3+ 11.Kh1 Qxh3+ 12.Nh2 Ng4 (12...Bd6 13.Ndf3 Ng4 14.Bf5) ] 3...c5 Break move to break the white pawn chain at the centre. [3...f6 Another Break Move.] 4.c3 White does not accept the sacrifice. Black has a strong Pawn chain of f7-e6-d5 But at the same time It has some disadvantages 1) the Light squared Bishop is blocked, known as the Bad French Bishop. The problem of light squared can be removed by 5--b6 followed by Ba6 and exchanging it with White's active Bishop on f1.  2) The Knight On g8 can not jump to its usual square f6. [4.dxc5 Bxc5 Dark Bishop will occupy the most important square.] 4...Nc6 5.Nf3 Qb6 Black is increasing its pressure on d4-pawn. 6.a3 6 a3 creates hole at b3-square and so Black  changes its idea and plays c4 to control the b3 and d3 squres. 6...c4 7.Nbd2 Bd7
