 Post subject: Transposing from the French to the Dutch Defense - Need Help
PostPosted: Mon Apr 05, 2010 2:43 pm 
I read somewhere on the Internet that there is a way that Black can transpose from the French to the Dutch Defense, but I've forgotten the move order after 1. e4 e6 2. d4 ?. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Just 2...f5 I suppose - sort of a Staunton gambit if white chooses to leave the e pawn undefended. I can't see many French players doing it though!

There are options you have in replying to 1.d4 with 1...e6. There is no transposition into the French unless White plays 2.e4. Anything else and you can get into a Dutch formation more than likely. You can still play 2...f5 after 2.e4. You might find it covered in chess literature as Balogh's Counter Gambit or as the Staunton Gambit (accepted or Declined depending on White's third move). In my experience 1.d4 d6 2.e4 f5 has been easier to play than 1.d4 e6 2.e4 f5, but that is probably just a matter of taste.
